The family of a woman whose body was discovered inside a Leicestershire flat have described her as someone who was “always smiling” and had “a heart of gold”.
Tracey Evans, 52, was found inside the flat in High Street after officers were called to the property at around 1.50am on Monday morning (August 6). She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Today (August 10), her family have 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.”
Due to proceedings being active in this case, the family has asked that people do not speculate and have asked for their privacy to be respected at this time.
Jeremy Clarke, 54, of High Street, Measham, has been charged with murdering Tracey. He appeared at Leicester Crown Court yesterday 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.
