MORE arrests have been made in connection with the Glynis Solmaz murder inquiry.
Three arrests were made yesterday as police were granted another 24 hours to question a man already in custody in Wrexham.
A North Wales Police spokesman said yesterday evening: “Earlier today officers arrested three more local men aged 52, 34 and 29.
“All the men have been arrested on suspicion of murder and conspiracy to burgle and are currently being held at Wrexham Police Station.”
Police had been given until 9pm last night to question a 23-year-old man from the Wrexham area. He was arrested on suspicion of the murder on Friday evening.
At 9am on Sunday, North Wales Police were granted an extra 36 hours to question the man who is also being held at Wrexham Police Station. A further 24 hours of questioning was granted last night.
The body of 65-year-old Ms Solmaz was found at her home in Bryn Hafod, Caia Park, on Wednesday morning.
Her home remained cordoned off yesterday with two police cars parked outside.
Meanwhile tributes have continued to pour in for Ms Solmaz.
On the Leader website ‘avasnanny’ wrote: “What a lovely lovely lady. She was our neighbour many years ago and I knew her through my work when she visited her aunt at the home I worked in.
“Such a terrible tragedy my thoughts go out to her family.”
‘raylexus44’ said: “Me and my brother Tom had known Glynis for about 35 years. She was a lovely lady, if she ever saw you she would come for a chat. She will be sadly missed.”
Det Chief Insp Mark Hughes, who is leading the inquiry, said: “Search warrants have been executed at addresses in Wrexham and the investigation is progressing with a number of lines of enquiry. I would again appeal for help from the community.”
An inquest has been opened into the death. A post-mortem examination was performed by a Home Office pathologist at the Royal Liverpool Hospital but the cause has yet to be established.
Ms Solmaz lived alone and enjoyed walking her two Rottweiler dogs around the area. She was last seen at a local chemist shop at about 11.10am last Monday.
Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen her anytime since last weekend, up to the discovery of her body before 10am on Wednesday.
Anyone with information is asked to call Wrexham CID at North Wales Police on 101 quoting incident number P026849 or anonymously on Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
