Staffordshire Police have today confirmed that they are not seeking anyone else in relation to the heartbreaking deaths of a paramedic featured on Channel 4's series and his nurse girlfriend.

Initially, the force approached the case as a double-murder inquiry after Daniel Duffield and Lauren Evans were found deceased at his residence in Hednesford on Tuesday.

However, the current understanding is that no third party was involved, and the police are now compiling a report for the coroner, who will conduct inquests in the future. The 24 year old appeared in the 11th season of the Channel 4 programme 999: On The Frontline, which documented the experiences of West Midlands Ambulance Service staff throughout the county.

Ms. Evans, aged 22 and a mental health nurse from Bridgend in South Wales, leaves behind a family who are reportedly shattered by the loss. Both families are being supported by specialist officers during this difficult time.

After "recent police contact" with the couple, Staffordshire Police has referred the incident to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). In their statement released today, the police said: "We can now confirm that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths of a woman and a man in Hednesford."

The police force stated: "On Tuesday (25 June), we were alerted by our colleagues at West Midlands Ambulance Service who were at an address in Alpine Drive in Hednesford. Sadly, 22-year-old Lauren Evans, from Bridgend, South Wales, and 24-year-old Daniel Duffield, from Cannock, were found inside."

"Post-mortems were concluded today (Friday 28 June). The cause of death is a matter for an inquest in due course. As we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths, a file is being prepared for the coroner. Specialist officers are continuing to support the families of those involved."

"Forensic examination continues at the scene, which is on a quiet residential street in the market town, as the force prepares information for the coroner. Detective Superintendent Nicki Addison, from our Major Investigations Department, said: "This incident has understandably devastated the families and loved ones of those involved.

"We'd like to reiterate that the families have asked for their privacy to be respected at this tragic time. Please respect that. And again, we'd like to remind you that speculation is unhelpful and hurtful to the families – and can hinder our investigation."

"I'd like to thank everyone who has given us information. We expect the scene to be released once we've finished all of our investigative work and forensic examination."
