News | Published:

The couple found dead in a car parked off a Wolverhampton lane were named locally today as Dave and Chev Cooke.

Police at the scene yesterday

The deaths of the couple, aged 42 and 46 respectively and who are from Wolverhampton, are not being treated as suspicious, police said on Thursday morning.

West Midlands Police said post mortems were due to take place this afternoon.

The couple are believed to have lived in Campion Drive, Featherstone, until around two years ago. It is around a mile from where they were found in a car on Cat and Kittens Lane, Bushbury, yesterday lunchtime.

A police cordon was in place at the entrance to the car park at the Greenfield Golf Club, which is off a small road leading off Cat and Kittens Lane.

The club is next to a National Grid Base – but no other buildings are in the immediate vicinity.

A dog removed from the car is being cared for by a vet.

Speaking after the bodies were discovered, Bushbury North Councillor Ian Angus said: "It seems like awful, tragic circumstances. I would urge people not to speculate and await the outcome of the police investigation."

Councillor Daniel Warren, who also represents the same ward, said: "It is tragic, it is an unknown for Bushbury.

"I am completely shocked. My condolences go to the family of the people.

"I would appeal for anyone with any information to go to the police to help them in this very sad and tragic case."
