POLICE are questioning three people believed to be connected to the double murder in Ravenswood.
And police now believe the stabbing deaths of Angela Maree Hallam, 31, of Ravenswood, and Joshua Eric Newman, 21, formerly of Hobart, at Ms Hallam’s Pioneer Parade unit on Wednesday night, were more likely to be motivated by relationship jealousy than by drugs.
“We have a bit of an idea of a story,” Detective Inspector Scott Flude said.
“I think it’s a relationship issue.”
The burnt bodies of Ms Hallam and Mr Newman were found at Ms Newman’s Pioneer Parade unit about 11pm on Wednesday, after firefighters were called to extinguish a fire.
Police believe the fire, which was burning in the ground floor lounge room of the two story unit where both bodies were found, was lit to hide the evidence of the crime.
Detective Inspector Flude said police could be looking for up to two killers.
He said three people were at the Launceston Police Station today, but as yet no arrests had been made.
An autopsy conducted in Hobart this morning revealed the pair died of blood loss caused by multiple stab wounds.
So far no murder weapon has been found.
Forensic officers will finish their examination of the unit today.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Police on 131 444
