Cambridgeshire Police have named the man whose body was found at an address in Peterborough early Sunday morning (July 1st) as 36 year-old Duncan Bell of Winyates from Orton Goldhay.

His body was discovered at a property in Hetley at about 4am after Police were called by a concerned member of the public. 

Mr Bell’s death is being treated as murder and inquiries are ongoing into the circumstances of his death. The property in Hetley remains sealed off. 

Meanwhile, a man who was later found that morning at around 8.30am at Peterborough Crematorium, in Mowbray Road, North Bretton, has been named as Roy Allison, 65, of Hetley, Orton Goldhay, Peterborough 

Officers investigating Mr Bell’s death discovered Mr Allison’s body after receiving further reports. 

A post mortem examination concluded there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Mr Allison's death. 

Both post mortem examinations were carried out yesterday at Peterborough City Hospital by Dr Nat Cary. 

The two deaths are being linked and police are not looking for anyone else in connection with them. 

Detective Inspector Liz Mead, who is leading the inquiry, told Heart: "Inquiries are continuing into the tragic set of circumstances that appear to have led to these two deaths and we remain in contact with the families of both men.”
