Is that why there is a helicopter hovering over the area?

Domestic, but no mention of murder/suicide. Maybe there is a bad guy running around.

Any updates on this story? It's Sunday afternoon and I don't see anything more than the original story.

Yeah..see other story..coroner called it death due to stab wounds. Now up to the coppers to decide if the bad guy was one of them, homicide then suicide, by knife, or there is a bad guy running around.

Yes no one should be allowed to own a knife with a blade length over two inches. Also we should consider banning marriages because they sometimes lead to violence.
