TRIBUTES have poured in for a 65-year-old woman who was found dead in Caia Park.
Police are treating the death of Glynis Solmaz, whose body was found at a house in Bryn Hafod on Wednesday, as murder.
Police maintained a presence in the area yesterday with one car outside the property and officers patrolling on foot.
Forensic teams later returned to the scene at the junction of Prince Charles Road and Bryn Hafod, close to Queensway Industrial Estate and Gwenfro CP School.
Two bunches of flowers were laid outside the gate to the home in tribute.
One nearby resident said: “It’s come as a very big shock, Glynis has lived round here for years.
“She was a very nice person and I didn’t want to come out here when I heard what had happened.
“The headteacher at the school asked the parents to take their children the other way round when they came out of school so that they couldn’t see all the police.
“It’s not what you want them to see.”
Another resident, who did not wish to be named said: “I’d usually see her walking her dogs up and down the road, she used to take them five times a day sometimes.
“They were big dogs but she loved them. She was a kind lady and we can’t believe what’s happened.”
Dozens of tributes were also paid on social networking sites.
On Facebook Sharon Ritchie wrote: “Very sad news. I used to work at Universal Underwear across from her as a hairdresser, if we worked overtime we would have our hair done free, very happy memories. She was a lovely lady RIP.”
Charlie WhiteFeathers said: “She was a lovely lady, my children doted on her. Those dogs were her life and vice-versa. RIP Glynis.”
Michelle Hughes said: “What I knew of Glynis she was a lovely, kind and happy person who was so devoted to her beautiful dogs. Thoughts are with her family.”
And Lynn Williams added: “She was a lovely woman, used to see her with her dogs and many of the times she used to stop to talk. Very sad, she will be missed, thoughts go out to her family.
Thinking of them at this sad time.”
