Police have said tonight they will be “open and transparent” during an investigation into its conduct in relation to the deaths of four people at a house on Friday.

The body of Kanticha Noon, 36, was discovered at a property, along with that of her sister’s husband, Bartlomiej Kuczynski, and his two daughters, seven-year-old Downreuang and Jasmin, 12. Police admitted ignoring a 999 call in connection with the deaths and now Norfolk Constabulary has referred itself to the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC). It’s also looking at previous contact at the address in Costessey, Norfolk, on 14 December which was in relation to a missing person enquiry.




The force’s Chief Constable Paul Sanford said: “Following the identification of the earlier 999 call, the constabulary referred itself to the IOPC who will now investigate. It is because of this process that I choose my words carefully; not because I don’t want to be open and honest, but because I have a duty to protect the integrity of any investigation that needs to follow. It will be for this investigation to identify and consider the circumstances and to consider if there were any issues with the response.”

Kanticha, the Mirror told, was on a trip from Thailand to visit her sister’s family, and there were “no warning signs” beforehand. Her best friend Naty Wathanakul said: “I wasn’t expecting that my friend wouldn’t be able to come back alive. She was just a petite woman, i cant believe this happened to her. It was too cruel to handle, I was crying.”

But now questions are being levelled at police after it confirmed a 999 call was made to the force from the man inside the address just before 6am on Friday and officers were not deployed.

Mr Sanford said: “This is a tragic and horrific incident and my thoughts, and that of the entire constabulary, remain with the family of those involved. I’m aware this incident has also caused great upset and shock in Costessey, the wider community and beyond.

“I know the family and the public will rightly want to know whether there was an ability to prevent this tragedy, and this is a question that must be answered. However, at this stage, I cannot answer that question. What I can say is that we will be open and honest in the days, weeks, and months ahead, to get the answers to this question.

“There will, of course, also be an inquest that will review the wider circumstances a surrounding the death and the involvement of the police and other agencies. We have thousands of interactions with the public every single day, on the phone and in person. It’s only right that when there are questions about our response, they are properly investigated, and I fully support and welcome this scrutiny.
