Couple found dead in ‘murder-suicide’
THE bodies of a husband and wife have been found at separate addresses after what detectives believe to be a murder-suicide.
Officers from West Midlands Police were directed by ambulance staff to a property in Streetly, near Sutton Coldfield, after the discovery of a man’s body just after midnight on Tuesday.
A woman’s body was then found in the early hours at an address in Rednal, Birmingham.
A police spokesman said: “At this early stage it’s understood the woman was murdered before the man took his own life in the garden of the Streetly address.
“Detectives are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
“Forensic post-mortems will take place in due course on the deceased, who were both aged in their 30s.
“Both areas have been cordoned off while inquiries continue to establish the circumstances that led to their deaths.”
