Floral Tributes for Patricia.

Floral tributes have been left in memory of Patricia Dornan who was found dead in Rugby last week.

The body of Patricia - known as Trish - was discovered in the early hours of the morning on Thursday last week.

Flowers have been left by mourners on the corner of Albert Street and James Street where her body was found.

One tribute said: “Our lovely lady. Sadly missed. RIP Tris.”

Another read: “RIP Trisha. So many happy memory of school. Always laughing.”

Police have described it as an ‘unexplained death’.

A post mortem examination on Patricia was carried out on Thursday but was inconclusive, and officers are now waiting for the results of toxicology tests.

In a brief statement Patricia’s mother, Hilly, said: “My daughter was beautiful, both on the inside and the outside. I just want to know what happened to my beautiful daughter.”

Officers are appealing for anyone to come forward who may have seen her the previous day.

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police said: “The woman has been identified as 39-year-old Patricia Dornan. Police would like to hear from anyone who saw Patricia or who had contact with her between 3pm and midnight on Wednesday 16th October 2013, as they continue to piece together her movements.”

The police are also keen to locate Patricia’s iPhone which is described as being white with a pink sparkly back and a dark coloured shoulder bag that Patricia is believed to have had with her earlier on October 16.

The woman arrested on Thursday in connection with the discovery of Patricia’s body was released on police bail on Friday pending further enquiries.

Anyone with any information are asked to contact the police incident room on (01788) 853956.
