Man held after four people are found dead in house in Derbyshire
A man has been arrested after four people were found dead at a house in Derbyshire on Sunday morning.
Emergency teams were called to the property in Chandos Crescent in Killamarsh, at around 7.25 am amid concerns over the safety of those at the address.
The Derbyshire Police confirmed that a man has been arrested in connection with the deaths.
Detectives said the case was being treated as ‘isolated’ and that they were not looking for anyone else in connection with it.
The road in Killamarsh was cordoned off early in the morning and multiple police vehicles remained at the scene through yesterday with a police tent erected in a front garden.
One local told Yorkshire Live: ‘It’s a bit of a shock, it’s usually quiet round here so you don’t usually see police, not like this anyway.
‘It’s usually quiet here, but police said ”don’t worry” to us but we don’t know anything.’
And another resident added: ‘You don’t really want to see all this on your doorstep.’
Detective Chief Inspector Rob Routledge, who is leading the investigation team, said: ‘We would really like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the early hours of this morning, or has any information which they think could help with our inquiries.
‘No matter how small you think that information may be, please do get in touch with us.
‘It is understandably a worrying time for the community, and we would like to thank them for their patience and understanding at this time.
‘It was important to us that close relatives of those involved were informed before we could give further details about incident.
‘Residents will continue to see a large police presence in the area, and patrols are being carried out for reassurance. If you do have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to them.’
