Father named in Wiltshire family deaths probe
Monday 03 September 2012
A man whose body was found next to his two dead sons in Wiltshire has been formally identified, police have confirmed.
A major investigation is under way following the deaths of Graham Gordon Anderson and two boys aged three and 11 in Tidworth.
Detectives say while they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, it is being treated as suspicious.
The tragedy has sent shockwaves through the estate, where a police cordon remains in place.
Detective Chief Inspector Ian Saunders, who is leading the investigation, said Mr Anderson had been identified by a close relative and urged people to help piece together the tragic dad's final moments.
He said: "I am extremely keen for any sightings of Graham Anderson with the two children between Saturday August 25 and Saturday September 1.
"He was a regular bus user and I now need to trace his movements, and those of the boys during the week leading up to the discovery of their bodies at lunchtime yesterday."
The alarm was raised by Mr Anderson's landlady, who was due to show prospective new tenants around his flat in Auchinleck House, Sidbury Heights.
To her horror, she discovered the bodies of the father and his sons.
Det Chief Insp Saunders said the case was an extremely tragic one, adding officers were not looking at any third party involvement.
