Red Kite Community Housing staff will continue to support tenants at Orchard House in Bourne End over the weekend.

Following the news that three people were found dead at the sheltered scheme, which is owned by Red Kite, everything has been done to ensure tenants feel safe and secure in their homes.

Julie Gamble-Kempe, Head of Communications and Brand, said: “Our staff are there to reassure the tenants and help with any issues they might have. We are also working with our partnership agencies, such as Buckinghamshire Mind and Cruse Bereavement Care, to support those who have been affected by the shocking events of the last few days.

“Our thoughts are with the families of those involved in the incident at this very difficult time.”

Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit is continuing its investigation following the incident on Tuesday (19th April). They have today (Friday 22nd April) shared that a postmortem examination concluded that the cause of death for all three people was as a result of stab wounds to the chest and abdomen.

The deceased are a man and a woman, both in their sixties and from Bourne End, and a man in his fifties from Hazlemere. Formal identification has yet to take place.

Senior investigating officer Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown, of the Major Crime Unit, said: “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.”

Anyone who may have heard a disturbance or who may have seen anyone or anything unusual in or around Orchard House or Spring Gardens between 6pm and 10pm on Tuesday is asked to call 101, quoting reference 43220134974.

Alternatively, if you do not wish to speak with the police but have information, you can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Detective Superintendent Brown added: “A scene watch is still likely to be in place for a number of days, which is likely to have an impact on local residents and I would like to thank them for their continued patience.

“Members of the public are also still likely to see an increased police presence while we continue to investigate this and we would advise anyone with any concerns to please speak to one of our uniformed officers.”
