Tracy McGrath, 59, was discovered in an upper story apartment on Belmont Road, Anfield, around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12, triggering an urgent emergency response.
Her body was found on a sofa in the living room and it is believed that she died several days before the alarm went off.
Police said on Thursday that a Home Office post-mortem examination had been found to be “inconclusive” so the incident was being treated as unexplained as investigations continued.
Today, Tracy’s family paid tribute and called on people to respect the privacy of the family at this “deeply moving time.”
In a statement, Tracy’s family said she is often described as having a ‘heart of gold’ and will be missed by her daughter, sons, grandchildren and the family at large.
There are others on current affairs, politics, court news, Knowsley, Wirral, arts and culture, as well as Liverpool FC and Everton FC.
