Disabled Woman And Mum Found Dead

Forensic tests to establish the cause of two mystery deaths at a house in Hertfordshire are today ongoing.

Police are continuing to investigate the deaths of the two women, believed to be a mother and her disabled daughter.

The bodies were found in Wheathampstead on Saturday "following concern for welfare of two people" at the property, police said.

Initial tests suggest the women did not sustain any external injuries and were not victims of violence, police said.

Full results of a post mortem examination will take several weeks.

"Detectives believe the circumstances surrounding the deaths are not suspicious and are not looking for anyone else.

"Officers and forensic teams are still working to establish the identities of the two women," a spokeswoman said.

The bodies were found at a house in Marford Road on Saturday afternoon.
