Weapon Found in Stab Deaths Probe

Police searching for a man suspected of killing his six-year-old sister, his mother and her partner have recovered a weapon from the crime scene. Police are continuing to search for 21-year-old Jed Allen who they want to question in connection with the deaths. The bodies of 48-year-old Janet Jordon, her 6-year-old daughter Derrin and 44-year-old Philip Howard were found at their home in Didcot, Oxfordshire, on Saturday. More than 100 officers - some of them armed - have been taking part in searches, which involved closing Oxford University Parks where Allen used to work as a groundsman. The park has since reopened. Det Supt Chris Ward, of Thames Valley Police confirmed that a weapon had been recovered, "from within the crime scene" but that the search for the "suspect continues today."
