The identity of the third person who also died, a man from Hazlemere aged in his 50s, will be confirmed by the coroner, police said.

All three knew each other and no suspect was being hunted, they added.

Senior investigating officer detective superintendent Kevin Brown said: “Our thoughts remain with the families of Jeffrey and Susan at what must be an extremely difficult time for them and I would ask for their privacy to be respected.

“We are still investigating the circumstances of this very complex enquiry, we are not looking for anyone else in connection with it and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
