Speaking yesterday Supt Jon Holmes, Lancashire Constabulary’s Head of Major Crime, urged anyone with information about what happened to step forward.
He said: ‘This is a truly harrowing set of circumstances and my thoughts are very much with the loved ones of Dr Sacharvi and Miss Mangrio.
‘They have my deepest condolences at this awful time.
‘We are now treating the investigation as a double murder inquiry and although we are still in the relatively early stages we have a dedicated team of detectives and staff working on it.
‘They are following a number of lines of enquiry to piece together exactly what has happened.
‘I would now appeal to anyone with any information about these two deaths to get in touch with us.
‘Perhaps you have seen something suspicious close to the scene in recent days or weeks, maybe you have CCTV or dashcam footage taken in the area that you can share with us, or perhaps you think you know who may be responsible.
‘Even if you think that the information you have is insignificant, please come and speak to us and let us be the judge.
‘We also recognise that this will have caused concern in the local community and we would like to reassure residents that we have extra patrols in and around the area. If anyone has information or concerns they can approach any of our officers.’
Anyone with information is asked to contact police through the dedicated Major Incident Portal or on 101, quoting log 0429 of October 3.
