Drone photos show police outside Killamarsh home after four people were tragically found dead
These photos show police surrounding a home in Killamarsh, near Sheffield, after four people were tragically found dead.
Derbyshire Constabulary confirmed last night that four bodies had been found in a house on Chandos Crescent earlier that morning, and a murder probe is continuing today.
It is understood that the bodies of a woman, her two children and a best friend of one of the youngsters were found, though police have yet to release further details.
Officers were deployed after concerns for the welfare of those inside the property were raised.
A man has been arrested and spent last night in police custody as enquiries continued.
Detectives have stressed that they are treating the incident as ‘isolated’ and are not looking for anyone else.
Detective Chief Inspector Rob Routledge, who is leading the investigation team, said: “We would really like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the early hours of this morning (Sunday), or has any information which they think could help with our enquiries. No matter how small you think that information may be, please do get in touch with us.
“It is understandably a worrying time for the community, and we would like to thank them for their patience and understanding. It was important to us that close relatives of those involved were informed before we could give further details about the incident.
“Residents will continue to see a large police presence in the area, and patrols are being carried out for reassurance. If you do have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to officers.”
