Main article content
The family of a woman who was found dead in Stafford have paid tribute to her.
We were called to an address on Wolverhampton Road at 1.20pm on Monday (27 November) to reports a woman’s body had been found.
Sadly, Milica Zilic, 28, was pronounced dead by paramedics.
Her family continue to be supported by specially-trained officers at the traumatic time.
Dale Crook, 33, from Stafford, has been charged with murder. He has been remanded ahead of his next appearance at Stafford Crown Court tomorrow (5 December).
In a tribute to Milica, her family said: “One year ago, we said goodbye to our dear Mili not knowing that it will be the last time we will see her. She was supposed to be going to better life, to pursue her happiness and dreams, but life had different plans for her.
“We can only hope that wherever she is now, she is good, she is carefree and that she finally found her peace.
We will always remember you our dear Mili.”
Detective Inspector Ian Fitzgerald said: “My thoughts and condolences are still very much with Milica’s family at this traumatic time. I can’t imagine the pain and suffering they have been feeling.
“I’d ask people not to speculate about what happened whilst our investigation is ongoing. I’d like to thank everyone who has been in touch with information already and I’d ask anyone with any information, which hasn’t done so already, to get in touch with us.”
