A man was due to appear in court today charged in connection with the death of a woman at a city centre flat.
Chloe Miazek, 20, from Kemnay, was found dead at an address on Rosemount Viaduct on Friday.
An inquiry was launched, with police saying her death was being treated as “suspicious”.
A 32-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with her death and was due to appear at the city’s sheriff court today.
Paying tribute to Chloe, her family spoke of their heartbreak over her death. In a statement, they said: “We are absolutely devastated following the death of our beautiful daughter and sister, Chloe.
“She was in the prime of her life and had so much to look forward to and it is difficult for us to comprehend she is not here with us today.
“Chloe was a loving daughter to Bob and Theresa, sister to Nathan and friend to many, including at her work at the Tesco store in Inverurie.
“She will be sorely missed and we ask for privacy as we try to come to terms with her untimely death.”
Officers today appealed to members of the public not to donate to a fundraising campaign which has been set up in the name of the family.
The page – on www.youcaring.com – has not been set up by Chloe’s family and Police Scotland is urging people not to donate to it.
Detective Inspector Gary Winter said: “This fundraising page is not connected to relations of Chloe Miazek and has caused unnecessary further distress to a family trying to come to terms with her death.
“We have contacted the website to make them aware of our concerns.
“In the meantime, I would ask people not to donate to this fundraising page and to share this message to prevent others from donating to it.”
Police were called to the scene at around 7.40am on Friday after receiving reports about the welfare of a woman.
Residents reported seeing ambulances in the area which is a mix of ground-floor shops, bars and upper-storey flats.
In a statement on Friday, Detective Chief Inspector Iain Smith said: “Our thoughts at this tragic time are with the family and friends of the young woman involved.”
Det Chief Insp Smith added that police would continue to carry out inquiries over the next few days in the area, and thanked memners of the community for their patience.
Police officers could be seen at the scene yesterday with a van parked outside the property on Rosemount Viaduct.
