Claire Hine (detective chief inspector) said previously that this incident took the lives of both a father and a daughter.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family as they deal with this unimaginable loss.

We are continuing to support them in any way we can.

We believe that the victim and the man held in custody knew each other. Although the investigation remains in its infancy, we have no plans to look for more suspects.

I urge everyone who saw or heard of suspicious behavior in Mayes Road to get in touch with the police.

“Information that allows us to build a picture about what happened in this case may be extremely important.”
