A 31-year-old woman found dead in a Suffolk house had been strangled and a man also found there died from hanging, post-mortem tests have shown.

The body of Beverley Farrow, 31, was found in a bedroom of the house, in Walker Chase, Kesgrave, on Thursday night.

Darren Hunt, 43, was found dead in the garage of the house.

Police said Mrs Farrow's death was being treated as murder. No-one else is wanted in connection with the deaths.

Mrs Farrow and Mr Hunt are believed to have known each other.

Police said in a statement it appeared "Mr Hunt may have taken his own life".

Officers were called to the house as part of a missing person inquiry.

'Forced entry'

A Suffolk Police spokeswoman said: "A light was on in the garage but there was no response. Officers became suspicious and forced their way into the garage at the property where they found the body of a man hanging.

"Entry was then forced to the home where the body of a woman was discovered in a bedroom.

Police said they had removed a vehicle, thought to have belonged to either Mr Hunt or Mrs Farrow, from nearby Halls Drift.

Det Supt Julian Gregory, head of the joint major investigation team, said: "We will continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Mrs Farrow and Mr Hunt fully but at this stage we are not looking for anybody else and as such there is not believed to be an ongoing threat to the wider public."

Anyone with information is asked to call Suffolk Police.
