A 70-year-old woman who is believed to have been murdered by her husband at their marital home in Worle has been formally identified – with her husband named as the person who died in a crash on the toll road on the same day.
The body of Ann Furneaux was found in Pilgrims Way on Thursday.
Mrs Furneaux’s husband – 74-year-old Edward Furneaux – died in the crash. One of the couple’s neighbours told the Mercury they believed police found Mrs Furneaux’s body when they went to the couple’s address to inform her husband’s death.
A spokesman from Avon and Somerset Constabulary said: “We’re not looking for anyone else in connection with the murder inquiry.
“Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of the couple.”
The couple’s neighbour said Mr and Mrs Furneaux seemed ‘completely normal’, and said the quiet Worle street has been left in shock following the crime.
