The heart-broken children of an Aberdeen woman found dead in her flat have paid tribute to a “much-loved mum, daughter, grandma and friend.”
Margaret Robertson, who was known as Meg to many, was discovered in the Promenade Court high-rise on Regent Walk last Friday afternoon.
Police launched a murder investigation into the 54-year-old’s death.
Specialist officers from across Scotland were sent to Aberdeen to help their inquiry, while a 24-hour police presence was set up around the tower block to allow anyone with information to come forward.
This evening Ms Robertson’s children, Mark and Michelle, issued a statement paying tribute to their mother.
They said: “Margaret, or Meg as we all knew her, was a much-loved mum, daughter, grandma and friend to many.
“We have received and read countless messages of support and would like to thank everyone for their kind words at this extremely difficult time.
“Every member of Meg’s family is heartbroken and she will be sorely missed by us all.
“It is hard to comprehend our mum has been taken from us and we will never, ever, understand why this had to happen to her.
“The past few days have obviously been extremely difficult for us as a family.”
Ms Robertson’s children described her death as a “horrendous loss”.
They also thanked the local community for the help and assistance they provided officers and the police for their “continued support and assistance”.
Today officers confirmed a 40-year-old man had been charged in connection with her death.
He is due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court tomorrow.
