Police are continuing to investigate the discovery of the bodies of a man and woman in Martlesham in Suffolk this morning, Friday 16th December.

The bodies were found by a man on a farm track off Newbourne Road at around 7:35am.

Officers attended the scene and set up a cordon, which will remain up throughout the day.

Their bodies were found together immediately next to a grey Mitsubishi motor vehicle.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Luckett of the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team said:

“The deaths are currently being treated as unexplained. Whilst I must retain an open mind about what has happened I have no evidence at this time of any third party involvement in their deaths.

Formal identification is yet to take place but we believe we know the identity of the deceased and are currently in the process of speaking with their next of kin.

The bodies will be recovered this afternoon and post mortem examinations will be carried out by a Home Office pathologist tomorrow. I am hopeful that as the result of the post mortems and other enquiries which are being carried out we will eventually have a clearer picture of the exact circumstances which led up to the deaths of this man and woman.”

Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101.
