A woman and her young son have been found dead at a home on a quiet street in Suffolk.
The pair were discovered by a member of the public inside the two-storey property in Newmarket on Friday afternoon.
Neighbours said a woman in her early 30s and her son aged under 10 who was “always smiling” lived at the house but “kept themselves to themselves”.
Police could be seen talking with locals today close to the semi-detached property on a narrow residential street.
One man who lives opposite the home said: “I came home last night about 8pm and there were feds (police) everywhere.”
The resident said that forensics had spent the night attending the property and that he knew the woman who lived there by sight.
He said: “Like everyone, she kept herself to herself. I only spoke to her once to collect a parcel. She was probably early thirties.
“The boy seemed happy enough though. He was a youngster, maybe seven or eight. He was always smiling every time I saw him.”
