Mill Park woman remembered as ‘beautiful angel’ as police arrest 45-year-old man over her death

The family of a woman found dead at her home in Melbourne’s north on Tuesday have remembered a “beautiful angel”, after police arrested a 45-year-old man over the death.

Police were conducting a welfare check on Elaine Pandilovski at her Mill Park home on Tuesday when they discovered her body just before 9:30pm.

A 45-year-old Epping man was arrested and is under police guard in hospital, but has not been charged with any offence.

Ms Pandilovski’s aunty, Mary Yoannidis, remembered her niece as a “beautiful angel” on social media.

“My beautiful niece, words can’t explain how we are feeling now. Your life was taken from us and we couldn’t help. I love you always, life will never be the same, our hearts will never be the same,” Ms Yoannidis said.

Forensic investigators were at the Hawkes Drive home this morning where they dusted the front door for fingerprints and gathered other evidence.

Neighbours learning of the death on Wednesday morning said Ms Pandilovski’s household had been a quiet one.

One neighbour, Doug, said he believed Ms Pandilovski had lived at the home with her young son after she separated from her husband some months earlier.

Anybody with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
