Body found at murder arrest house

The body of a young man has been found at the house where double murder suspect Stephen Farrow was arrested.

Police said the death of the man in Black Bull Road, Folkestone, Kent, was being treated as non-suspicious and a post-mortem examination will be held.

Sources said it was the same property where Farrow was detained on Sunday following a tip-off from the public after Avon and Somerset Police launched a nationwide manhunt.

Farrow, 47, of no fixed address, has been remanded in custody charged with the murders of vicar John Suddards and retired teacher Betty Yates.

The discovery of the man's body is not believed to be linked to their deaths. One source said that it is believed to be drugs-related.

A Kent Police spokeswoman said: "We were called at 8.35am following the discovery of a young man's body at the house.

"Officers have been at the address this morning. The death is being treated as non-suspicious."
