Newmarket deaths: Bodies of woman and boy found in house
A woman aged 28 and a four-year-old boy have been found dead in a house in Suffolk.
A member of the public reported finding the bodies at the property on Park Avenue, Newmarket, at 18:00 BST on Friday.
An eyewitness told the Newmarket Journal a woman came out of a property "in tears".
Detectives continue to investigate the circumstances of the deaths and said the next of kin had been informed.
The force has appealed for anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the area during the day to contact them.
Officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths, a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary added.
A semi-detached two-storey house was cordoned off and a Volkswagen Golf hatchback was left parked across the pavement behind police tape.
One neighbour, who lives opposite, said: "I came home last night about 20:00 BST and there were feds (police) everywhere.
"They were here all night, I think, and forensics were going in and out."
He said he knew the woman by sight but had only spoken to her once.
"She, like everyone I suppose, kept herself to herself," adding that the boy "was always smiling every time I saw him."
Another couple, who also live on Park Avenue, said they had seen the boy playing in the nearby park.
"There are a lot of rented houses on this street, so a lot of people come and go," they said.
An elderly resident added: "I've been here for 60 years and it's quite a quiet street.
"Very sad though, isn't it. Tragic."
The street remains cordoned off by police.
