Police have launched a double murder investigation after two women, believed to be mother and daughter, were stabbed to death in their homes. Officers were called to a home in Golders Green, London at 8.50pm last night to reports two people were seriously injured. The London Ambulance Service also arrived at the scene and found the 66 and 33 year olds with stab wounds.

Sadly both women were pronounced dead at the scene and their next of kin have been informed. A post mortem examination will take place soon. Police believe they know the identity of the victims but formal identification is yet to take place.

A man wanted for questioning by cops has been named as 27-year-old Joshua Cohen. The suspect was known to the victims and detectives are appealing for information on his whereabouts. He is described as white male, 5ft 9ins tall, with short cropped hair and short beard or stubble. Police said the suspect has mental health issues including paranoid schizophrenia and should not be approached by members of the public.
