Elizabeth Edwards (49) and her daughter Katie (13) were found dead at their home in Dawson Avenue, Spalding, Lincolnshire on Friday 15th April 2016.

Two 14 year old youths have been charged with their murder.

Ms Spalding worked at a local primary school. A neighbour is reported to have described her as “a lovely lady, very friendly” and “quite well-known because she worked at a primary school”. Katie was described as”lovely too but very quiet.”

DCI Martin Holvey, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, is heading the investigation. He has called for information about the period from around noon on Wednesday 13th April to noon on Friday 15th April.

Superintendent Paul Timmins said: “I would like to make clear that this type of crime is extremely rare. Indeed, we believe this is a completely isolated incident.”
