Tragic mum ‘doted on daugh­ter’

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

MORE trib­utes were paid to­day to a “dot­ing mother” found dead in her Aberdeen home.

Lynda Brem­ner, 39, is un­der­stood to have been dis­cov­ered by her for­mer part­ner and 11-year-old daugh­ter when they re­turned home from school on Tues­day.

Po­lice were to­day con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the death, which was be­ing treated as un­ex­plained.

Neigh­bour and close friend Pauline Geraghty said the death of the “happy-go-lucky” mother had left the close-knit com­mu­nity dev­as­tated.

“They were try­ing to get in the house for two hours be­fore they found her,” she said.

“She doted on her daugh­ter Char­lotte. Lynda was all about the kids.

“I took her away on hol­i­day with me. She said she al­ways wanted a son so my boy was like a son to her. He can't be­lieve he is not go­ing to see her again. This has re­ally af­fected him. We are all gut­ted.”

Scott Harvey, Lynda's ex-boyfriend and fa­ther of her child was too up­set to speak about the tragedy.

Paramedics were called to the flat at about 4.50pm on Tues­day.

A Grampian Po­lice spokesman said: “Shortly be­fore 5pm po­lice and am­bu­lance crews were called to an ad­dress in Links View in Aberdeen.

“It was re­ported that a 39-year-old fe­male had been found de­ceased within the ad­dress.

“The death is cur­rently un­ex­plained, but there are no sus­pi­cious c i r c u mstances.”
