Bartlomiaj Kuczynski, Jasmin Kuczynska Obituary – The bodies of engineer Bartlomiaj Kuczynski, aged 45, Jasmin Kuczynska, aged 12, and her seven-year-old sister, along with a 36-year-old woman, were discovered at a property in Allan Bedford Crescent at the Queen’s Hill estate in Costessey, near Norwich, at approximately 7.15am on Friday. A concerned member of the public had called the police shortly before 7am, expressing worries about the well-being of the individuals inside. Officers arrived at the scene at around 7.15am and forcibly entered the premises, where they found the deceased.
Since then, the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team has been diligently working to determine the circumstances surrounding these deaths. Detective Chief Inspector Chris Burgess, who is leading the investigation, stated on Saturday evening: “We have interviewed witnesses and neighbors, conducted thorough house-to-house inquiries, reviewed local CCTV footage, and conducted preliminary scene investigations. As a result of these efforts, we do not believe that anyone else is involved in this incident.”
Post-mortem examinations will be conducted on Sunday, January 21, for the man and woman, and on Wednesday, January 24, for the two girls. While it has been confirmed that all four individuals had injuries, no further information will be disclosed until after these examinations have taken place and the cause of death has been determined.
“This is a tragic incident that has caused distress for all those involved, and it is evident from the community’s reaction that it has also caused a great deal of shock and upset. Uniformed officers have been patrolling the area today, and this will continue tomorrow,” added Detective Chief Inspector Chris Burgess. The police have confirmed that Mr. Kuczynski and his daughters resided at the address, while the woman, although related, was visiting and not a permanent resident. Specialist officers are providing support to the next of kin, and a police cordon remains in place at the scene. On Friday, the incident was initially referred to the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) due to previous police contact at the address on December 14, which was related to a missing person inquiry.
