Police were continuing their investigations into the deaths of two people in Ipswich today.

The double death in Siloam Place on Monday morning is being treated as a “tragic incident involving two people known to each other”, according to officers.

Police are expected to release more information about the incident today.

Officers were called to the scene just after 8.50am where a man was found with serious injuries after falling from a window – from which he later died – and a deceased woman was found inside the property.

Superintendent Kerry Cutler, policing commander for Ipswich, said: “This would appear to be a tragic incident involving two people known to each other and we are not looking for anyone

else in connection with the incident at this time.

“As such there is no threat to the wider community, but I would appeal to anyone with any information about these deaths to make contact with our officers.”

Siloam Place was cordoned off as police and forensics attended the incident.

Neighbour, chef Sadik Kayhan, 37, lives in the flat directly below the two people and was working late before the incident.

He arrived home at about midnight before deciding to go to sleep in his lounge which overlooks the street.

Mr Kayhan said: “I went to bed about half-four. I was sleeping in the lounge and I heard a crashing sound and then sirens. I thought it was the TV at first but then I looked down out of the window and saw a man on the ground with paramedics already there.

“That was what I saw first thing in the morning.

“We all have families and people we love here, and when we read in the newspapers and online about things like this it makes us very sad, we don’t want this area to be associated with violence.”

Another neighbour, who lives just doors down from the incident and saw paramedics attempt to resuscitate the man, said: “I didn’t know what was going on at first, I had just woken up and my housemate told me to look outside.

“It was definitely shocking, we saw the guy receiving CPR but I didn’t recognise him.

“It’s just not something you expect to see on your own doorstep.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact south CID at Landmark House on 101 quoting CAD 83 of August 6.
