Inquiries are continuing today into the deaths of two people found at a house in Sleaford.
A man and a woman were found deceased at the property on George Street just after 4pm yesterday.
Investigating officers are continuing their enquiries today and a scene guard remains in place. Detective Inspector Andy McWatt, who is leading the enquiry, has now confirmed that, at this time, nobody else is being sought in connection with this incident.
DI McWatt said: “We still have several lines of enquiry to look into to establish the exact circumstances around what has happened, and postmortem examinations have yet to take place to find out what caused the deaths of both of these people, but I am satisfied that, at this moment, we do not need to look for anyone else in connection with this investigation.
“I appreciate there may be a good deal of public interest and concern in relation to this tragic incident and we’re working hard to establish the facts, but I want to make clear that we do not think there is any wider threat to the public. As soon as we can update with more information, we will.”
As postmortem examinations and formal identification have not yet been carried out for either individual, we are not yet in a position to be able to release their names. These are expected to take place later this week.
