Police in Norfolk have identified the four family members found dead in a house near Norwich as Bartlomiej Kuczynski, 45, Kanticha Sukpengpanao, 36, Jasmin Kuczynska, 12, and Natasha Kuczynska, 9. Autopsies revealed that Mr. Kuczynski and Ms. Sukpengpanao were killed by stab wounds to the neck. The Norfolk Police has referred itself to the police watchdog twice regarding this case.
Detectives have stated that they are not seeking any other individuals in relation to the discovery made on Friday in Costessey. Autopsies on the two girls are scheduled for Wednesday.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) disclosed that a man had called 999 from inside the house in Allan Bedford Crescent, on the Queen’s Hills estate, expressing confusion and concern about his mental state before the bodies were found. He was advised to seek medical help and call NHS at 111.
Police arrived at the house around 07:15 after receiving a call from a worried dog walker. They forced entry into the house and found four bodies. The IOPC will investigate whether the police’s response to the initial call was appropriate and aligned with their policies, training, and procedures.
Ms. Sukpengpanao was a visitor at the house at the time of the deaths, while Mr. Kuczynski lived there with Jasmin and Natasha. The two local schools attended by the girls are providing support to their students.
Both head teachers paid tribute to Jasmin and Natasha, describing them as lovely, kind, and gentle. They also mentioned that they are working with Norfolk County Council’s critical incident support team to provide extra support for students and staff during this difficult time.
