Two people arrested in Farnworth murder probe

This Is Lancashire: Kildare Street - the scene of the murder invetigation Kildare Street - the scene of the murder invetigation

TWO people have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a father-of-one was found dead in his home.

A 27-year-old man and a 63-year-old woman from Farnworth are now in custody for questioning.

Police were called to a house in Kildare Street at 4.30pm on Wednesday after a report that a man's body had been found.

Post mortem tests showed that 40-year-old Marc Jepson died from "asphyxiation".

Detectives launched a murder investigation and are continuing to appeal for witnesses.

Det Supt Robert Tonge, from the police's major incident team, said: "The fact we have made these arrests does not mean the investigation has come to a close.

"The inquiry will continue for some time and we are continuing to appeal for witnesses."

I agree up to a point, but no one has been found guilty yet.

Wasn't assuming anyone had been found guilty, was merely pointing out the hard work that has been carried out, in trying to find the guilty person or persons!
