Murder police have named a man they believe to be a double killer – and he is still at large.
West Midlands Police confirmed that Anthony Russell is a wanted man after the body of David Williams, aged 32, was found at a flat in Riley Square, Coventry at around 11:30pm.
David was last seen on 20 October and then reported missing to police on Saturday evening.
His mother, Julie Williams, aged 58, was found dead at her flat at Emily Smith House, also in Riley Square, just before 11pm on Sunday 25 October after concerns were raised for her welfare.
The causes of both of their deaths are yet to be established, and post-mortems are due to take place in due course.
Russell, aged 28, from no fixed address, but with links to Coventry, is now sought in connection with the two murders. It’s thought he could have travelled down south, possibly to Plymouth, Devon or Cornwall.
A police spokesman added: "We’re appealing for anyone with any information about his whereabouts to get in touch as a matter of urgency. Russell is considered dangerous so we’re asking you not to approach him but call us immediately on 999."
A 36- year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, he’s currently in custody.
