BARELY able to contain their tears, the son and father of Ipswich murder victim Malgorzata Lipinska today spoke of their grief.

While packing her belongings in the 38-year-old's second floor flat in Duke Street they described the former beauty therapist as a loving mother and a wonderful daughter.

Their tributes come the day after her estranged husband Mariusz Lipinski is thought to have taken his own life while on remand at Norwich Prison for her murder.

Today, inquiries are under way into his death. It occurred within 14 hours of his arrival at the jail where he was expected to be on suicide watch.

However, it is the loss of Mrs Lipinska which still focuses the mind of her grief-stricken family.

Although they despise Lipinski, also 38, for the frenzied attack which left Mrs Lipinska dead from multiple stab wounds to the head and body in a stairwell of the flats where she lived, it is her memory they wish to cherish.

Her son, Sebatsian Wronski, said: “She was a very good mother. She always helped me every time I needed her. She protected me and helped me find a job.

“My mother loved me and my sister. She used to call Poland all the time.

“She was a very friendly and happy person. I can't remember her ever being angry. She was always smiling.

“I am very upset. My mum is all I have got.”

His grandfather Wladyslaw also paid tribute to his daughter. With Mr Wronski interpreting, he said: “Malgorzata was a wonderful daughter. I want to remember her how she was.

“She was very friendly. She had very good friends everywhere she lived.”

As he told how his daughter also liked nice clothes and walking, he turned away unable to say any more because tears welled up in his eyes.

Mr Wronski said he arrived home from work at 1pm on Friday, around an hour after his mother was killed, to find police swarming around the block of flats.

He said: “I had been at work and when I got back home there were so many police cars. I was wet because it was raining and I was waiting for information. About four hours later I was told my mother had died.

“An officer told me my mother was murdered, but couldn't tell me any more. I just don't believe it. I am still shocked.

“Her friends have telling me they don't believe what happened - how it is possible this man killed my mother? It's very unfair.”
