Three bodies London police found earlier this week are indeed those of “EastEnders” actress Sian Blake and her two children, authorities confirmed Thursday.
The remains of the 43-year-old British soap actress and her sons, 8-year-old Zachary and 4-year-old Amon, were discovered in the garden of their Erith home on Tuesday. “Significant” attempts to conceal the three bodies had been made.
Subsequent post-mortem examinations revealed they died as a result of head and neck injuries. A triple murder investigation was launched earlier this week.
Further tests are being done, with results expected in a few weeks.
The police are searching for Blake’s partner, Arthur Simpson-Kent, who disappeared after speaking to officers at the home on Dec. 16.
“This is a fast moving investigation and we are actively pursuing a number of lines of inquiry. If anyone has any information that they think might help our investigation then I would urge them to get in contact with us,” said Detective Superintendent Paul Monk from the Homicide and Major Crime Command.
Blake and her sons were last seen on Dec. 13.
She was on the popular soap opera in the 90s.
