Young couple found dead in Leicester home named

Leicestershire police have named the man and woman found dead at their home in Glenfield last week.

Husband and wife, Lorraine and Jesus Sanchez, were discovered by a family friend, who broke into their home after being concerned for their welfare.

Police and paramedics were called to the address on Tatlow Road, just before midnight on Tuesday 27 November.

The couple were well known devout church goers. An inquest today heard 31-year-old Jesus was found hanging from the attic, while his 27-year-old wife was found face down on a bed.

Neighbours told of their shock at the deaths, which could be a tragic murder-suicide as Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with their deaths.

A post-mortem examination carried out on the couple proved inconclusive and further tests are being conducted.

The inquest into their deaths, which is being heard at Leicester town hall, has been adjourned whilst further investigations into their deaths take place.

St Matthew’s Seventh Day Adventist church is providing support to the couple’s families.
