– DETECTIVE CHIEF INSPECTOR TONY HEYDON, LINCOLNSHIRE POLICE
We have been conducting enquiries in and around the farmhouse and those enquiries will continue throughout today. Our thoughts are with the couple's family and the residents of this very small village. We hope to have some answers as to exactly what has happened in the coming days, but at this time I would appeal to anyone who has any information to contact us.
An investigation has been launched after a woman was found dead in Maplebeck.
A man was also found injured at the scene and taken to Lincoln Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
The two people are believed to be a couple in their 70s who live at the house in Low Farm.
Nottinghamshire Police say they are treating the woman's death as suspicious.
