The force's major crime investigation team believe the pair were in a relationship and are working to establish 'as much as possible' about the circumstances in which they died.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Nicole Main, said: “While we await a formal identification of Benjamin, we have taken the step of naming him today with the support of his family.

Slate Drive, Kettering.

“We understand he and Maddie had been in a relationship, and are working to establish as much as is possible about the circumstances in which they died."

Both families are being supported by specially-trained officers.
