Police have formally identified a man and a woman found dead at a house last week.

Officers were called at 9.30am to Blyth Walk, Upminster, on Monday, July 11, and found 89-year-old Vera Savage and her 54-year-old son, injured.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and post-mortems were carried out at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, on Wednesday, July 12.

A police spokesman said: “Both died of stab injuries.

“One is being treated as suspicious and the other is not.”

On Wednesday, May 31, builders called police to attend a domestic incident at the house.

It is believed John was taken to hospital suffering a mental health crisis and his mother left in the care of social services.

A neighbour, who did not wish to be named said: “Let’s just say there’s been a big mistake.”

Another neighbour, said: “We have lived here for 70 years. They were a lovely family. They’ve never been any bother.”
