DETECTIVES investigating the death of a former Sheffield woman and her two children are waiting for further tests to be carried out on the bodies.

Post mortem examinations have been carried out following the discovery of the bodies of 24-year-old Joy Small, and two of her three children, over the weekend. But further tests have been deemed necessary to help establish how they died.

Joy, who was originally from Sheffield, was found dead in her home in Leicester with her three-year-old son Aubarr and two-year-old daughter Chanarra.

The body of her ex-partner, Aram Abdul Razaq Aziz, 32, had already been discovered in a nearby country park.

Leicestershire Police said they are treating all four deaths as suspicious but are not looking for anyone else in connection with the tragedy.

Joy’s former husband Javed Ghaznavi, also of Leicester, said he met her when she was 17 and living in Grimsby.

He said she was born in Sheffield and was living with adoptive parents when they met.

Joy gave birth to her first child, a boy now aged seven, when she was 18 and the young family moved to Leicester.

When Joy’s marriage broke up her son went to live with his father.
