The bodies of twin brothers were discovered together in an isolated country lane in a suspected joint suicide just three days after Christmas, it is reported.
The men were found dead in a tree near to a farm on the outskirts of Sevenoaks, Kent, at about 11.30am on Saturday.
It is said that the men were 32 and from the local area, and their family had previously expressed concern for their welfare.
Kent Police said the deaths are not currently being treated as suspicious and a coroner will determine the cause.

Post-mortems are due to take place and an inquest is likely to be held in the new year.
Sources told the Sun it appeared to be a joint suicide.
A local resident said: “It’s horrific – and just after Christmas. I feel desperately sorry for their loved ones.
“I heard the police cars head down there earlier and then the cordons were in place.
“It’s very remote and quiet down there. It’s well out of the view of passing cars or dog walkers.”
A spokeswoman told Mirror Online: “Kent Police was called at 11.34am on Saturday after the bodies of two men were discovered in Dibden Lane, Sevenoaks.
“Enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the deaths are ongoing but they are not currently being treated as suspicious.
