Earlier this week, it was revealed that three dead bodies were discovered in the garden of British soap opera star Sian Blake‘s home. Oh no!
Reports claim that authorities believe the identities of the bodies belong to Blake and her two sons, Zachary and Amon. In case you forgot, the EastEnders actress and her little ones were reported as missing back in December. It’s said that Sian was last seen on December 13 after visiting relatives with her boyfriend, Arthur Simpson-Kent.
A neighbor claims they saw Arthur removing bags from the family car the day after, but not the family.
In fact, Scotland Yard’s investigation team even appealed for any information that would help them track down Blake’s man — who hasn’t been seen since the family of three’s been reported as missing. Well that is certainly suspicious!
Detective Superintendent Paul Monk shared:
“Sadly, as part of a thorough forensic search we are carrying out at the family’s home in Erith, we recovered three bodies from the garden of the property. As yet, we have not formally identified the bodies but this is of course a significant development and Sian’s family have been informed. This continues to be a fast moving investigation and our thoughts are with Sian’s family at this time. This is now a murder investigation and as such I’d urge anyone who can help our investigation to contact us.”
How tragic. Not to mention, the potential suspect is believed to have fled to Ghana, West Africa since Sian’s disappearance. Still, police note that this bit of news was brought about by the media not the investigation.
The bodies were scheduled to be examined at the Princess Royal Hospital so a confirmation of the identities may arrive sooner than later. Our thoughts are with Sian’s loved ones during this trying time.
