POLICE remained at a home in Rosemont Avenue, Kelso over the weekend as they continued their investigation into the deaths of Bathurst residents Elie Issa and Nadia Cameron.
Officers yesterday remained tight-lipped about the progress of the investigation after the bodies of the couple, who had been in a relationship for several years, were discovered in the living room of Mr Issa’s home on Friday morning.
A firearm was also located in the vicinity and a gunshot in one of the home’s windows was visible from the street.
Police say they are not looking for a third party in relation to the couple’s deaths.
Sergeant Ross Hunt from Chifley local area command confirmed yesterday that detectives were still at the property.
“Police continue to investigate the circumstances of their deaths,” he said.
“We are investigating all aspects that could have resulted in this.”
On Friday, Chifley local area command Acting Superintendent Chris Sammut said the investigation was in its infancy and police would be speaking to family and friends in the hope they could shed some light on what may have occurred in the days and weeks leading up to the incident.
No further details regarding the case have been released by police at this stage.
A report will be prepared for the information of the coroner.
Mr Issa was the owner of Elie’s Cafe on William Street, while Ms Cameron worked as a sales consultant for Bathurst Real Estate.
