At this stage of our investigation there is no evidence of any third part involvement and we can confirm we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the shootings. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family at this time.

We would like to speak to anyone who saw Anne and John Knott prior to Monday (11 August). At present, the last confirmed sighting was around midday on Saturday (9 August) and if anybody has had contact with them in recent days, we urge them to come forward.
