In a shocking incident, the bodies of a four-member family were discovered on Friday in one of the apartments in the Hounslow district of West London. The Metropolitan Police in London released the names of the victims on Saturday evening, confirming that they were Polish. The police also stated that they are not currently seeking anyone in connection with the case.
According to the information provided by the police, the victims included a 39-year-old man, a 35-year-old woman, and their two children aged eleven and three. The authorities have notified the relatives of the deceased, and post-mortem examinations will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
Earlier, Sky News reported that the victims were likely Polish, citing a neighbor who admitted to not knowing the family very well. The police confirmed this information later.
The police received a call on Friday afternoon from a concerned individual regarding the welfare of the residents at a house on Staines Road in Hounslow, West London. Upon arriving at the scene and gaining entry to the premises, officers discovered the four bodies inside.
“Our investigation is still in its early stages, and the situation currently indicates that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident. However, we remain open-minded and urge anyone who believes they have relevant information to contact us as soon as possible,” stated Detective Linda Bradley.
A mother of one of the girls who attended the same school as the family’s children told Sky News that her daughter had been trying to contact them since Tuesday, but they did not respond to the messages. She added that she had assumed the entire family had gone to Majorca, as they had mentioned such plans.
The tragic discovery has sent shockwaves through the local community and has left many questioning the circumstances surrounding the deaths. The police investigation is ongoing, and authorities are appealing to the public for any information that could help shed light on this distressing incident.
