Man and woman found dead named

Have your say

POLICE yesterday named two people who were found dead in a house in Chesterfield last week.

The bodies of David Connaugton, 60, and Julie Connaugton, were discovered in a house in Walton Drive at around 2.15pm on Friday.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said yesterday: “Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths and are preparing a file for the coroner.”

Officers were initially called to the house on Friday after “concern was raised for one of the occupants”.

Yesterday, tributes to Mrs Connaughton were being left on Facebook. The 57-year-old was described as a “lovely lady.”

Post-mortem examinations to establish the causes of death are still yet to be carried out.

Anyone with any information on the deaths has been asked to call Derbyshire Police on the non emergency number, 101.
