A double murder investigation has been launched after the bodies of two females were found inside a house in Great Waldingfield.
Police were called at just after 9.55am today, Thursday, September 8, to reports of concern for safety at a property on Heath Estate in the village.
When officers gained entry to the address they discovered two deceased females. Both victims were found with stab wounds.
A seriously injured man was also located inside the property and was detained. He was taken to hospital by air ambulance where he remains in a serious condition.
At this early stage of the investigation police believe that this is a contained incident and there is no wider threat to the community. Police understand that all three individuals were known to each other.
Home Office post mortems for the two females are due to take place in the coming days.
A reported gas leak at the property has now been made safe and residents who were earlier evacuated as a precaution will be allowed to return home.
Detectives are appealing for any witnesses or anybody with any information to contact the Major Investigation Team, by calling 101 and quoting reference: 37/57943/22.
