Sussex Police have launched a murder investigation but stressed they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, which officers said was ‘confined’ to the house in Woodmancote, near Chichester.
Sussex Police went to the three-bedroom home at 6.45pm on Sunday after receiving a call raising a welfare concern for the residents. All four were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the dog, which was a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Bill.
Detectives launched a murder probe, amid suspicions over a possible murder-suicide. Officers confirmed they are not seeking anyone else in connection with it. Post-mortem examinations and formal identification are yet to take place, they said.
Mr. Needham owned a company called Needham Building Services which specialized in domestic construction, but this was dissolved last October. Since then he had been building an extension for his family after moving back into his mother’s home.
The killing death toll during the coronavirus lockdown which began last Monday is now at nine, after three other incidents in Wales, Hertfordshire and South Yorkshire.
The Sussex murders were the latest in a string of cases at the weekend at the end of Britain’s first week on lockdown, following concerns raised when the measures were imposed of a possible increase in domestic violence and mental health issues.
Chief Superintendent Jerry Westerman said: ‘This is believed to be an isolated incident contained to one property and in these early stages of the investigation we are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.’ Locals were warned that they could expect to see a heightened police presence in the area. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Sussex Police on 101, quoting Operation Cotton.
