The woman found dead in a suburban home has been identified as 35-year-old Tiffany Woodley.
Western Australian Police were called to a home along Birkett St, Bedford, in Perth’s inner-northeastern suburbs, about 5pm on Monday evening.
They found the mother-of-three “severely injured” and unresponsive.
Paramedics were unable to revive Ms Woodley and she died at the scene.
Her aunt Rosalie Miller-Kickett paid tribute to her niece on Facebook on Tuesday morning.
“It feels like it’s all a bad dream,” Ms Miller-Kickett wrote.
“My deepest condolences and sympathy to … all my family at this difficult time of traumatic grief and loss of our beautiful Tiffany Anne Woodley (RIP) who was a daughter, sister, Mum, granddaughter, niece, cousin, aunty and friend to many, who all Loved her so much.
“We are all devastated and in disbelief that this happened to our beautiful Tiffany … Gone too soon my beautiful baby girl.”
Family members were also present at the Birkett St address on Monday afternoon, where forensic police officers had spent the night combing over the property.
Ms Woodley’s cousin Patrice told The West Australian newspaper she would keep the “precious memories” she had in her heart.
“Our sister was a good woman, she had three beautiful children, she had a heart of gold,” she said.
“I will remember Tiffany as a young beautiful woman, very smart, she shared whatever she had. She’s going to be sadly missed by our family.”
The West also reports a women’s refuge in Perth lit a candle and held a minute’s silence for Ms Woodley on Tuesday morning, while the woman’s family are planning a candlelight vigil to honour her.
A man, aged in his 30s, was taken into police custody at the scene.
He’s assisting with inquiries, but no charges have been laid at this stage.
WA Police inspector Geoff Desanges said violence of any nature is unacceptable.
“WA Police have a zero tolerance towards violence, especially when perpetrated in the home,” Inspector Desanges said.
“If you call WA Police, we will come. We will make the situation safe. Victim safety is our priority.”
