Officers were called by the ambulance service to a property in Pembroke Close at around 12.50am on Friday where a man had received a stab wound. Paramedics tended to the man but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Formal identification of the man has taken place and he has been named as Paul Bone, 40, of Trinity Avenue, Mildenhall.

A post mortem was carried out yesterday afternoon and the cause of death has confirmed Mr Bone died as a result of a stab wound.

Crime Scene Investigation officers were at Mr Bone’s home today, with the house cordoned off.

Flowers had also been left at the front of the house.

Neighbours said Mr Bone was “a nice man”.

One neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “He was a nice man and a good neighbour. It’s a shock.”

Specialist officers were also at the scene of the alleged incident in Pembroke Avenue, with a reduced cordon, manned by an officer, now in place.

Neighbours said police officers had visited their homes for statements.

A 45-year-old woman and a 49-year-old man, both from Mildenhall, were arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody at the Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre.

Suffolk Police have been granted a magistrates’ court extension to detain the two people in custody for questioning until 6pm on Sunday.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
