Odd: Tributes trails after couples discovered dead on social media

Tributes have been paid on social media after a couple were found dead in the loft of their Kingsway home.
Robert and Ellen Griffiths, both aged 36, were discovered at their home in Shawbury Avenue, Kingsway, last Thursday when police forced their way into the house.
Mrs Griffiths’ family members contacted police after failing to hear from either of the couple.
Suspicion was raised further after Mr Griffiths failed to attend court on charges of making and possessing indecent images of children.
Their deaths are not being treated as suspicious.
Two days before they were found in the loft of the house, a warrant had been issued for Mr Griffiths’ arrest when he failed to attend Gloucester Crown Court to be sentenced.
He had pleaded guilty at an earlier magistrates’ court hearing to 15 charges of making indecent images of children.
Mr Griffiths also admitted three counts of possessing extreme pornographic images involving animals.
On Facebook, Kerry Webb said: “I'm in shock. Ellen was such a lovely, lovely lady, (it is) such sad news.
“My thoughts are with the families and friends.”
Clare Cave-Ayland also paid her own tribute.
She said: “Ellen was a beautiful person, so kind.
“She will be sadly missed, my thoughts are with their families.”
Police were called to the address in Shawbury Avenue, Kingsway, on the evening of Wednesday, July 16.
Their deaths were confirmed by paramedics shortly after midnight.
An inquest was opened by Gloucestershire coroner Katy Skerrett yesterday and adjourned until January 25 next year.
Neighbours have expressed their shock after it emerged the ‘quiet and unassuming’ couple had taken their own lives.
A post mortem examination on both bodies revealed the cause of death in both cases was vasovagal inhibition due to hanging.
