Merseyside police are looking into two separate murder investigations after bodies of two women were found overnight at separate addresses in Merseyside. One of the two women was found dead with multiple injuries at around 9pm last night, when police was called to the address over concerns for her welfare. Whereas the other women was found at a separate address, i.e. just five minutes from the first address, in sheltered accommodation at 4am today.
Consequently, Police has increased patrolling in the area and has so far declared both deaths as suspicious. Although it has not made any arrest so far, it believes both women were known to the alleged murderer. The causes of death have not yet been established and formal identification is still to take place.
Detective Superintendent, Tim Keelan, has announced that “the investigation into these deaths is at an early stage and although the motive is unclear at this time, officers believe the offender may be known to the victims.” Meanwhile the Director of Older People’s Services at Your Housing Group, Martin Stevenson, alleged that “tragically a body was discovered at one of our Roger Arden Court sheltered scheme apartments in Bootle this morning.” He added that “Merseyside Police attended the incident and we are continuing to support them with their investigations. Our thoughts are very much with the family and friends of the deceased at this difficult time.”
