As previously reported, the bodies of a man and woman, thought to be husband and wife Lawrence and Bernice Williams, were found in Lutton by police.

Lawrence Williams, 50, was discovered by officers on April 7, with his wife of the same age found by specialist teams on April 9 at the property on Colley’s Gate.
