A woman who died in Birmingham on Friday (28 January) has been named as Marina Shaban as her family pay a loving tribute.
We found the 41-year-old woman with serious injuries in the entrance of a property on North Holme, Bordesley Green shortly after 7pm.
Sadly nothing could be done to save her, and she passed away at the scene; a forensic post mortem examination is due to take place tomorrow (31 January) to establish a cause of death.
Marina’s mother has paid tribute to her daughter saying, “A loving, caring and dedicated mother with a fantastic personality and real zest for life was tragically taken from us before her time.
“She leaves behind four children and a huge family who loved, admired and cared for her deeply.
“The entire family are absolutely devastated by her death and ask that we are given space to grieve, however urge anyone with information to please come forward.”
We are reviewing CCTV and talking to witnesses, but we continue to appeal for any information or anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the area at the time who can help us.
Inspector Harjit Ubhi from Birmingham West said, “This is truly a tragic incident and my heart goes out to Marina’s family, who are being supported by specialist officers.”
“We know this will be a huge shock to neighbours and the local community. There is an increase in police presence around the area to offer reassurance to people with concerns.”
“We know this is a busy area and we are appealing for anyone with dash cam footage or CCTV, or anyone who witnessed anything to contact us.”
