Cops were called just before 10am on September 8 to a property in Great Waldingfield Heath Estate after safety concerns were raised

A 46-year-old man who was detained at the crime scene sustained serious injuries.

He remains in hospital in a stable condition and is under arrest on suspicion of two counts of murder.

Today cops released a tribute from the pair's heartbroken family in which the family spoke of their "utter devastation" and pain in their hearts.

The full statement reads: “We, the family of Jillu and Louise Nash, have been struck by utter devastation, despair and pain by the tragic way the beautiful little lives of a young mother and a child have ended and from whom we are now separated forever. 

“Our only solace is that Jillu and Louise are together in heaven eternally. This catastrophe will never leave us and the pain will stay in our hearts forever.

“We appreciate Suffolk Constabulary's efforts, which have been honest, sincere and sensitive.

"They have treated us with great respect and due care, for which we are extremely touched and acknowledge this with gratitude.

“We are also very grateful to Jillu's neighbours, the people of Sudbury, work colleagues, school teachers, peers, friends and well-wishers.

"We are astounded and comforted to learn of the way our daughter and granddaughter touched the hearts of so many in the Sudbury community.”
