We launched a murder investigation in Abergavenny on Friday 8 April following the death of a 90-year-old man.
The Welsh Ambulance Service were called to an address in Abergavenny on Tuesday 5 April after a man was found unresponsive outside a property.
The man was taken to hospital, however died from his injuries on Friday 8 April.
He can now be named as Michael Hodson.
A 68-year-old women from Abergavenny was arrested on suspicion of murder and has since been released on conditional bail.
Michael’s daughters – along with his wider family – have issued the following tribute to him:
“Daddy was a wonderful husband, father, step-father, grandfather and friend to so many people. He was the most gentle of gentlemen – kind and unassuming.
“He was happiest in nature, tending to his vegetables and planting trees. He loved his many trips to Scotland where he spent happy times with friends on river banks.
“He leaves a huge hole in the lives of all those that loved him and the twinkle in his eyes will always shine on.”
Anyone with information which could assist the investigation is asked to call 101 or send us a direct message on Facebook or Twitter, quoting log reference 2200115123.
