Channel 4 TV medic, 24, found dead inside home

Staffordshire Police discovered two bodies - one believed to be TV medic Daniel Duffield - inside the property earlier this week

One of the two bodies discovered inside a property in Staffordshire on Tuesday (25 June) is believed to be that of Channel 4 medic Daniel Duffield.

The 24-year-old was discovered by police, along with another body, believed to be 22-year-old Lauren Evans.

A murder investigation has since been launched.

The duo both worked as paramedics, and Daniel appeared frequently on Channel 4's much-loved series 999: On The Front Line, which gives viewers an insight into the often arduous realities of employment within the UK's emergency services.

One of Daniel's close friends and co-stars - named Ellie - has since taken to social media to share a tribute to his life, describing the incident as 'tragic'.

"Never in a million years did I think I'd have to sit and write this and yet I'm still trying to come to terms with it," she penned.

"I just want to express how special you [were] to me, not only my best friend at work and the best crew mate but one of my best friends who had a massive impact on day to day life, the most kind hearted person who always had time to help others, who made me laugh every day and always would pick up the phone whenever I was in need."

She concluded her heartbreaking message by admitting: "Dan I can't believe you're actually gone.

"We were meant to go out together this week and I was looking forward to seeing you. Even the phone call we had this morning an hour before you [were] gone I'll never forget, love you forever Dan."

Staffordshire police said the two bodies were discovered on Alpine Drive, Hednesford, Cannock, by paramedics at around 12.30pm on Tuesday.

Though formal identification is still yet to take place, the incident has since been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

"My thoughts are very much with the families at this time," Detective Superintendent Nicki Addison, from Staffordshire Police Major Investigations Department, said.

"I know this news has understandably shaken the local community. I’d like to reassure everyone that we’ve got a specialist team of officers working extensive hours to fully investigate what happened and support the families of those affected.

"We completely understand that lots of people want to know more about what happened, but we’d like to reiterate that speculation isn’t helpful to families at this distressing time.

"I would like to thank everyone who has already come forward with information and ask that people continue to get in touch if they’ve got any information that can help us."

Daniel's sister also released an emotional tribute to her 'beautiful brother', admitting she never expected to have to make such an announcement.

"[Daniel] has left us today I’m so distraught you’ve gone," she wrote. "I will never come to terms with it that your no longer here you was such a bright soul always helping other people making them smile, laugh saving lives but unfortunately you couldn’t help yourself.

"I will forever cherish you and us growing up together you will always be in my heart was the best brother I could of ever asked for forever 24 RIP Daniel Duffield.

"I’ll always miss you and love you forever untill we meet again rip brother."
