The family of a woman - found dead in a Leicestershire flat - have described her as someone who was “always smiling”.
52-year-old Tracey Evans was found inside the flat in High Street in Measham after officers were called to the property at around 1.50am on Monday 6th August. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her family have now paid tribute to the “caring, thoughtful and kind mother, daughter, sister, auntie and friend.”
The family said: “Having grown up and spent her whole life in Measham, Tracey was a well-known and liked member of the community. She was always smiling and will be missed by so many.
“Tracey was extremely hard-working with a heart of gold, completely selfless and always putting others before herself.
“She was a caring, thoughtful and kind mother, daughter, sister, auntie and friend who will be so dearly missed.”
54-year-old Jeremy Clarke of High Street, Measham, has been charged with murdering Tracey.
He appeared at Leicester Crown Court on Thursday morning where he was remanded into custody.
A plea hearing is due to take place on September 10.
A 39-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder was released from custody with no further action on Monday.
