A 46-year-old male believed to be living in Park Farm was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of murder, following the 'unexplained death' of a middle aged man in Park Farm, Peterborough. In a later statement Peterborough Police confirmed that  both a man and a woman had been arrested in connection with the death.

It is the latest of a series of serious incidents recorded over the last few years in this neighbourhood.  Park Farm Way was the scene of frenetic police activity for most of Friday following the 7:30am arrest of the two suspects.

Unconfirmed local sources are already naming and suggesting one of the accused, is a high profile member of a pub musical group.  

Police Vans from the tri-county police scientific squad (CSI) and teams of forensic officers dressed in uniform white paper coveralls, began a minute inspection of the crime scene,  a modest terrace house on Park Farm Way, Park Farm, Stanground.

By 6pm most of the police teams had departed, leaving just an area police car parked outside the crime scene, the investigation will continue over the weekend.

The two accused are thought to be in custody at Thorpe Wood.

A police spokesman said: “Police activity in Park Farm Way, Stanground is related to an investigation into the unexplained death of a man in his 40s' on April 15.

“A 43-year-old woman from Peterborough has been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, and a 46-year-old man from Peterborough, has been arrested on suspicion of murder.”


The terraced house in Park Farm Way, is situated in Stanground East Ward,  which includes Park Farm.  The Ward is due to disappear in May 2016 under the Boundary Commission changes announced last year, and will in future form part of a wider conurbation including the new estates Cardea and parts of old Fletton, all to be renamed Stanground South. 

New candidates for the vacant council seats have been announced, for the local government elections, taking place on May 5th.  

Residents have been highly critical about the lack of a visible police presence, in the area and the removal of experienced local microbeat officers, 'who knew all the faces'  all said to be due to the cut in police funding and slimmed down resources, being deployed elsewhere, but mainly in the City centre.
