Police investigating Dartmoor deaths find boy's body

Officers investigating the deaths of a 24-year-old woman and her five-year-old son in a fall at Haytor on Dartmoor have found the body of a two-year-old boy, also believed to be her son, at her home in Paignton.

We are keeping an open mind about all three deaths, but at this stage we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

We are keen to speak to anyone who may have any information or might have been in the Haytor area earlier today, Friday.

– Detective Superintendent Paul Burgan, Devon & Cornwall Police

Police say post-mortem investigations on all three will be carried out in due course. Their next of kin has been informed.
