The police have named a man and woman who were found dead in Westminster, central London.
Scotland Yard has revealed the two as Clinton Ashmore, 59, and Sharon Pickles, 45.
Ms Pickles was found dead at an address in Ashbridge Street after receiving a 09.30 phone call.
Five hours later officers were called to a property in Jerome Street where they found Mr Ashmore.
The Metropolitan Police said the two deaths were being treated as one inquiry.
Both victims died from a stab wound to the neck.
The police want to speak to a man called Lee Peacock about the deaths.
It is believed the 49-year-old knew both Ms Pickles and Mr Ashmore.
Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said:
“Firstly, my thoughts are with the families of Sharon and Clinton.
“This is a shocking crime, and we will not rest until we bring the person or persons responsible to justice.
“Key to that is finding Lee Peacock.
“We believe he knew both victims and urgently need to locate him to talk to him about their murders.
“We have a team of detectives working around the clock to find him, but so far they have been unable to locate him.
“I would urge anybody who knows his whereabouts to contact police at once by calling 999.
“If seen, we would urge the public not to approach him, but to contact police as soon as possible.”
