Police renew appeal over Tidworth deaths

Salisbury Journal: Graham Anderson Graham Anderson

POLICE have renewed an appeal for information as they try to piece together the events prior to the discovery of the bodies of a father and his two young children in Tidworth on Saturday.

Graham Gordon Anderson, 36, was found dead in Auchinleck House, Sidbury Heights at lunchtime on Saturday. The bodies of the boys, aged 11 and three, were in another room. The deaths of the boys are being treated as suspicious and police are not looking for anyone else at this stage in connection with the incident.

DCI Ian Saunders of the Brunel Major Crime Investigation Team, who is heading the inquiry, said today: “We are gathering CCTV footage from shops in Tidworth and from buses which run through the town.

“It is very important that we establish the movements of Graham Anderson and the boys between Saturday, August 25 and Saturday, September 1.

“I am grateful to members of the public who have called us with possible sightings but we would like to renew our appeal for information.

“We know that Mr Anderson was a regular bus user so we would appeal to fellow passengers and bus drivers to come forward if they recall seeing him and the boys during last week.”

The post mortem examinations on the two boys are now underway in Southampton. Anyone who has information that may help police is asked to call Wiltshire Police on 101 and ask for the incident room, or if they wish to remain anonymous they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
