A mum was found dead in her home just months after her partner died in the same house.
Kiesha Donaghy, 32, was discovered dead at her home in the Anderson Drive area of Elgin at 7.20pm on Thursday night. Her death is currently being treated as unexplained.
It is the second tragedy to hit the family after Kiesha's partner James Gillies, 20, also died at the same property just nine months ago. Police were called to the house on February 1 and police ruled there were no suspicious circumstances.
Police vehicles were stationed outside of a cordon on the street yesterday following Kiesha's death.
Police have cordoned off multiple residential streets as an investigation continues. Uniformed officers were seen standing guard at the property on Saturday morning.
Tributes began to appear for Kiesha online.
Emily O'Shane said: "R.I.P you were one of a kind and will be missed by so many."
Harry Cross said: "Absolutely gutted."
Marie Stockwell added: "Rip Kiesha."
Jade Cruickshank said: "Very sad. Life is so cruel. What in the world do we live in, just horrible and tragic."
