Investigation started as mum of two found murdered alongside body of man in quiet residential street

A MURDER probe has been launched after the body of a mum-of-two was found along with a man in a home.

Police were scrambled to the house on the quiet residential street in Portsmouth, Hampshire, at around 10.30am yesterday.

They discovered the bodies of the 60-year-old woman and a 66-year-old man inside.

Officers confirmed they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the horror.

Shocked neighbours told how a married couple, who had two children, lived at the £500,000 four-bedroom home together.

They also said police told them there had been a “major incident” as they swooped on the street.

One local, who did not wish to be named, said: “I went out and there was a woman sat outside on a patch of grass crying.

“Six police cars arrived and an ambulance.

“A couple live at that address and have two children.”

Hampshire Police said the couple’s family are being supported by specialist officers.
