& # 39; It's a little too early to speculate what happened, but it has been a tragic incident today. The family certainly suffers from a horrible loss of parents, & # 39; Acting Chief Inspector Gerard Lawson, told a press conference on Friday.
& # 39; We are not looking for weapons at this stage and we are not looking for a third party. There were some obvious injuries, but I don't want to comment on them. For the sake of the family, I do not want to speculate, & Lawson continued.
The dog of the couple was in possession at that time and was reluctant to leave.
& # 39; That's one of the most emotional aspects of it, the dog didn't want to leave the house this morning, but she went to the family, & # 39; Lawson continued.
Mr. Webb previously received a & # 39; Pride of Portside & # 39; award for cleaning up waste in the area.
When he received the prize, he said he wanted to clean up the broken glass and other waste for the mother and children in the area.
Neighbors told the Portside News that they would regularly see him walking his dog in the park while cleaning up the area.
A major police operation is now underway to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of the duo, in what is probably a murder-suicide, Newcastle Herald reported.
The couple's medical history is assessed during police investigations.
Crime scenes have now been established at both locations, but according to the police, there was initially no involvement of third parties.
Newcastle City detectives are investigating the case.
