Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.”
