Dancer killed in 'murder-suicide' by partner died from stab wounds to chest, inquest heard


Maddie Durdant-Hollamby, 22, was found in a house on August 27, after police received a report fearing for her safety. The body of her boyfriend, Benjamin Green, 41, who owned the property, was discovered there at the same time, Northamptonshire senior coroner Anne Pember was told.

Green died from self-inflicted stab wounds, the inquest heard.

Northamptonshire Police said marketing worker Ms Durdant-Hollamby’s death at the house in Kettering was being treated as murder and no one else was being sought.

Ms Pember told the inquest Ms Durdant-Hollamby’s father Stephen identified her body. The cause of death was stab wounds to the chest.

In a statement after her death, the Durdant-Hollamby family, from Wimblington, Cambridgeshire, said: “We are absolutely devastated at the loss of Maddie, our beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter and niece.

“Our hearts are broken and we cannot begin to imagine life without her.

“The shock and pain we are feeling is indescribable. She was a beautiful person both inside and out, who loved nothing more than spending time with her family and friends.”

The statement added: “Maddie was a kind, caring, thoughtful young woman, who touched the lives of everyone she met. A talented dancer, her creative talent continued through school and into her career in marketing.

“Her life has been sadly cut short just as her career was blossoming. Our thoughts are with everybody who knew and loved Maddie as much as we did.”

The inquest has been adjourned to January 13 next year.
