Police have released a photo of two people found dead at a house in Carbis Bay, just hours after packing their son off to school.

They have been named as Jonathan Trenchard and his wife Derisa, known as Reesy.

Police were called to the bungalow on Polwithen Drive on Wednesday morning after Mr Trenchard failed to turn up to the factory where he worked and Mrs Trenchard was absent from her post as a legal secretary.

Neighbours were alerted by sirens and tell Pirate FM there were up to seven squad cars and a helicopter.

They say the couple were kind and hard-working and report seeing them out walking their dogs earlier that morning.

Children were told to walk home from school on a different route.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At 11.33am on Wednesday 2 October 2013 St Ives police attended Polwithen Drive St Ives following a report of concern for the occupants.

"Enquires at the address led to the discovery of a body of a man and a woman.

"Enquires are ongoing. At this time police are not looking for anyone else in relation to this enquiry."

Forensic teams are going over the house, trying to piece together what happened.

Kirsty's gran lives a few doors down. She said: "It is the calmest place I have ever seen in my life. Everything is so quiet and so peaceful - normally.

"Everyone is so friendly and everyone knows each other, so it's really, really shocking when something like this happens.

"Nothing like that ever happens in Carbis Bay or even in St Ives. It was really out of the blue.

"It puts you on edge because you don't expect something like that to happen round about where you live. It gets you concerned for your own family and friends."

Postmortems took place last week but police say it is not their place to release the results.
