The death of a young West Lothian mother has had a “devastating effect” on her family, her father said.
Nattalie Muir, 21, was found in Whitburn town centre shortly before 0300 GMT on Saturday. She died later in Wishaw General Hospital.
A 15-year-old boy has been charged with her murder.
Nattalie’s father, Callum Muir, said the mother-of-one was “beautiful, loving, caring and generous” and had a “great personality and sense of fun”.
Lothian and Borders Police said two other people, a 34-year-old man and a woman aged 19, have also been charged in connection with her death.
In a statement issued on behalf of the family, Mr Muir said: “Nattalie’s death has had a devastating effect on all of us, and we are struggling to come to terms with our loss.
“She was a devoted mother to her daughter Paige, and was adored by everyone who knew her.”
He added: “Her loss in such tragic circumstances has been a huge shock to all of us but we will always treasure the happy memories of her as a loving mum, sister, daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and of course, friend.
“We still cannot believe that this has happened to such a loving and happy young person.”
