Police say a dancer was stabbed by her boyfriend, who then turned on himself.
The bodies of Medi Dordent Holmby and Ben Green.41, police found Friday at a catering home in Northamptonshire.
Police say Green, the marketing director and father of three, killed Medi and then himself in a shocking suicide.
Early post-mortem reports indicate that Maddie died of stab wounds, and that Green himself died of stab wounds.
Northamptonshire police say his death was considered a homicide by detectives and no one else is being sought.
Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Joe Benfield said: “Our investigation into Medie and Ben’s deaths is ongoing, and a file is being prepared for the coroner.”
Both families have been informed of the results and expert officers are continuing to assist.
Steve Dordent Holmbey, 48, and Rachel, a colleague of her devastated parents, share their concerns about the “arrogant” Green’s “control” nature and Maddie’s “other thoughts about her future.”
A friend told. Mail online.“Steve told us he wasn’t happy with Made Bean and he talked about ending the relationship.
“He was almost as old as Steve and Rachel and had three children from a previous marriage and they were related to him. Any parent would be upset if their 22-year-old daughter came home with such a man.”
“Steve and Rachel are only in their 40s and so were Ben, so I can understand their concerns,” he added.
Medi and Green are thought to have begun their relationship after meeting at Almask Water Management Solutions, where her father was previously the managing director.
The dancer and her family, from the well-heeled Wimbledon, Cambridgeshire, are well-respected in the area.
Father Steve was previously president of the local Parkfield Sports Club.
A member of the club pointed out the couple, who shared photos of their luxury holidays and enjoyed crappy restaurants and bars, had a toxic relationship in front of social media.
He said: “Steve sometimes said that Ben was not good for Medi.
“He didn’t go into too much detail but indicated he didn’t like it and found it under control.”
Any parent would be upset if their 22-year-old daughter came home with such a man.
Another member added: “Maddie was a beautiful girl, really charming and beautiful who loved her parents very much.
“She was very worried about the age difference between her and her boyfriend and with what we heard, she had other thoughts about her future.”
Steve and Rachel are believed to have sounded the alarm after not listening to the media for several days, and officers visited Green’s home before making a horrific discovery.
The 22-year-old divided her time between the 800 800,000 four-bedroom family home and her boyfriend’s place, where she spent most of her time.
Neighbors claimed that Green paraded young girlfriends between the ages of 22 and 30 inside and outside his 700,000 home before meeting the aggrieved media.
The woman, who has lived at the front door for 18 months, said: “He had at least three girlfriends. She would stay for about six months and then another one would appear.”
He said it was “very difficult” to know and was called “arrogant”.
Maddie’s mother, Rachel, paid tribute to her late daughter, who “spread her wings and flew with the angels.”
He wrote in a Facebook post, “Baby you are our world and our life is not complete without you. Heaven is very lucky to have you.”
Police say Meddie’s death is being treated as a homicide, no arrests have been made and they are not looking for anyone else in the case.
Police say there is no known history of domestic abuse and the couple’s friends told The Sun they were happy together.
