On social media, Naomi was described as a ‘tennis lover, music junkie, film and TV addict’.
One neighbor told the Standard: ‘She was fun to be around and a real character. She was into music and tennis. She was a nice person.
‘We are very shocked by the whole thing. She only used to go away for one night at the most. When she disappeared for more I knew something was wrong.
‘I saw her Whatsapp went offline which was unusual, she was always on her phone.’
Another neighbor said: ‘Naomi was a flamboyant, lovely fun person. I think she had problems in her life but was well liked.
‘We are devastated to lose a friend and neighbor.’
