Murder investigation launched in Wrexham

A murder investigation has been launched after a woman was found dead in her home in Wrexham. Police were called to a house in Bryn Hafod Estate, Caia Park on Wednesday morning where the body of Glynis Eileen Solmaz, 65, was found.

North Wales Police say Ms Solmaz had been at a local chemist at about 11.10am on Monday morning, but police want to speak to anyone who saw her since the weekend. She lived alone and had two Rottweiler dogs which police say she exercised regularly in the area.

We would like to reassure local residents that there will be extra patrols in the area. Incidents such as this are not common in Wrexham and we are determined, with public support, to bring those responsible to justice.
