Second pensioner dies following discovery in Newbury home
Police were called to a property in Berkeley Road on Sunday where an 89-year-old woman was discovered dead.
They also found the 94-year-old man at the property who was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford yesterday with head, ribs and shoulder injuries.
But a police statement released mid morning today (Monday) said that the man died on Sunday night as a result of his injuries.
Forensic post mortems are expected to be carried out today (Mon) on both.
Senior Investigating Officer Det Ch Insp Gill Wootton said: “We are continuing to treat both of these deaths as unexplained until the post mortem results are known.
“We are yet to determine fully the circumstances which led to these people’s deaths and will keep an open mind until all forensic tests and investigative searches are carried out on the property where they were found.”
Next of kin have been informed but formal identification has yet to take place.
