Bodies of man and woman found in house in Kesgrave

Police found two bodies at a house in Suffolk after being alerted by the dead woman's husband, a detective has said.

The 31-year-old woman was reported missing at about 20:40 GMT on Thursday when she failed to return home.

Her body was discovered in a bedroom at the address, in Walker Chase, Kesgrave, at about 21:30 GMT. A man, aged 43, was found in the garage.

Officers closed the road while they investigated. Both deaths are being treated as unexplained.

Det Supt Julian Gregory, of the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, said: "We received a report of a missing person in relation to a woman, which was made by her husband.

"We conducted some inquiries and within a reasonably short space of time identified an address in Kesgrave."

A second scene was set up in Halls Drift where a vehicle, believed to belong to the dead woman, was discovered. The car was later taken away for further investigation.

Post-mortem examinations are yet to take place.

A resident, who did not want to be named, said: "It's a real shock. I had spoken to the woman to say 'hello' and she seemed really nice."

The terraced house, on the Grange Farm estate in Kesgrave, is surrounded by police tape with three patrol cars outside. Police are set to remain at the scene until Saturday morning.

The house is yards away from a primary school in the town.

Khalid Zuberi, 41, who lives opposite the house, said police had knocked on his door asking if he had seen the man who lived there.

He said: "I said I hadn't. They found his light was on. They had to use a crowbar to get in the door and then found a body inside. Paramedics came but they left without taking the body."

A police car was guarding a silver VW Polo in nearby Halls Drift. A spokeswoman said it was linked to the inquiry.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Suffolk Police.
