HUDDERSFIELD, United Kingdom - THEY were the couple no-one knew. Police have now named the man and woman found dead at a house in Deighton.

UK Police officers went to the house on Chalwood in Deighton, Huddersfield, after receiving a call at about midnight on Tuesday.

West Yorkshire Police have confirmed that the bodies of Efias Rusukira and his wife, Grace, were found at their house.

The couple were not well known in the area and are thought to have come from Zimbabwe.

Although people who live nearby had seen them, no-one knew them well.

Police broke their way into the flat and are understood to have found Mrs Rusukira on the bed and Mr Rusukira hanging from the loft.

It is thought the police probe has focussed on the possibility that Mr Rusukira had murdered his wife before taking his own life.

Mr Rusukira was 50 and Mrs Rusukira was 47.

The couple's flat is still sealed off with police tape and a bunch of flowers has been left outside as a tribute.

Neighbour Jason Bushell only moved into the neighbourhood a week ago.

The 28-year-old said: "I can't believe it. I'm looking out the window all the time.

"I had never met him or his missus before because it's actually pretty quiet around here from what I can see."

Jason, a student at Kirklees College, said he heard a bang in the middle of the night on Wednesday.

He said: "I heard a police radio outside and heard a loud bang from downstairs and a noise from across the way.

"I looked out the window and there were about four police cars and one BMW jeep.




"I've just moved away from an area where I had a bit of trouble with the neighbours and I thought it was quiet here but then this happens."

The case is being investigated by West Yorkshire Police's Homicide and Major Enquiry Team (HMET) which deals with the most serious crimes.
