A mother has said she will never accept the loss of her “baby girl” after she was found dead suffering “unexplained” injuries at her home.
Charlotte Holland, 20, was found dead at a house in Green Street, Hereford on July 17.
A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of her murder before being bailed by West Mercia police pending further investigation.
In a statement released through the force, Charlotte’s mother Gaynor, said: “In memory of my beautiful, funny, caring, loving daughter - my precious baby girl Charlotte.
“As a mother I never ever expected to have to write something so tragic and heart-breaking as this – my heart is in pieces, and I know many of you who knew Charlotte loved her dearly.
“As most of you know by now my beautiful daughter Charlotte passed away in what I can only describe as completely devastating circumstances.
“The heartache I am enduring at this awful time knows no boundaries. I still cannot and don’t think I ever will accept the loss of my baby girl and best friend.”
Police officers were called to Green Street in Hereford shortly after 5am on Sunday 17 July, following a report of a concern for safety.
When they arrived they found Charlotte suffering “unexplained injuries” and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
