Recent developments have moved the investigation forward in a number of directions and we now believe that there was a burglary at Dr Shakoor's house in Barn Mead in which items were removed from the house.
We believe that this burglary took place after the family had gone to bed and before the fire was discovered.
Our inquiries have revealed that in Harlow during the same evening and early morning there were two other unsuccessful attempts to break in to other properties and one where entry was gained but the suspect was disturbed and nothing was taken.
How these incidents relate to the current investigation is ongoing.
