Ms Saleem’s grieving sister paid a heartbreaking tribute to her in an interview with the BBC.
Nour Norris said mum-of-six Khaola was “like a mother to her” and was “very special.”
“Everyone used to think she was my mum,” she said. “Though she’s not much older than me – not more than ten years.
“There’s something about her, because she cared about me so much, everyone had the feeling she was my mum.
“We were best buddies, people who know us know that. She was my soulmate.
“Life was just fun around her, that’s all I can say. If you’re sad, she will make you happy and if you’re happy, she’ll make you more happy.
“She was a mother to all of us. She was even a mother to my mum. Even my mum used to say ‘she’s my mum as well.’
“She had very big heart, she was very generous with everything – with her heart, with her heart, with her money, with her food.
Believe me this one was very special.”
West Midlands Police thanked members of the public for their support during the investigation.
Det Insp Caroline Corfield said: “I would like to thank the community for their support over the last few days, the response to our appeals has been excellent.”
