A young single mum died suddenly at home in ‘unexplained’ circumstances.
Jennifer Hinton’s body was discovered at an address in Tean, Staffordshire a week ago.
The 37-year-old’s death, which was initially described as ‘unexplained’, is now under police investigation.
Tributes have flocked in for the former Cheadle High School student, who leaves behind children Keira, Sophie, Elysia and Dominic.
Friends have set up a fundraising page for the kids, which has already raised £2,000.
A description on the GoFundMe pagereads: “Single mum Jennifer Hinton was taken from this world too soon on September 19 leaving behind four beautiful children who were her world.
“These four vibrant children are now starting a new chapter in their lives without their loving mum.
