A mum killed her two daughters then took her own life in a murder-suicide tragedy in Bolton.
The death of Tiffany Stevens is ‘not being treated as suspicious’, Greater Manchester Police said in a statement this morning.
However the deaths of her children Casey, three, and Darcey, one, are being treated as murder.
Detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with their murder.
Police were called to Little Lever in Bolton on Monday afternoon following reports of concern for welfare at the property.
Officers found the bodies of Tiffany and her two young children.
Detective Chief Inspector Colin Larkin of GMP’s Major Incidents Team said: “Our thoughts remain with the family at this unimaginably difficult time.
“Specialist officers will continue to support them while they deal with the loss of their loved ones.
“This was an extremely upsetting case that has affected the family, friends, the local community and everyone at GMP who has been involved with it.
“I would like to thank my fellow officers for their professionalism and diligence over the past 48 hours and the local community for their cooperation and patience.”
Neighbour Annmarie Crossland, a good friend of Ms Stevens, said their children played together.
Annemarie, 36, called Ms Stevens a ‘brilliant mum, friendly and nice to talk to.’
Detectives’ enquiries are continuing and officers are liaising with HM Coroner.
