AYLESBURY, England, June 26 (UPI) -- A man found dead in his home in Aylesbury in central England was killed with a crossbow, police said Tuesday.
The Thames Valley Police said Darrell Farnham, 44, was ambushed Sunday night by a killer who was targeting him, the Daily Mirror reported. He was originally believed to have been killed by a gunshot, but the autopsy Tuesday found a bolt from a crossbow.
Two suspects were taken in for questioning. A 40-year-old man was being held on suspicion of murder and a 37-year-old woman on suspicion of being his accomplice.
Detective Superintendent Chris Ward, who is heading the investigation, said police believe others may have been involved in the killing.
The crossbow, with a bow mounted on a stock, shoots projectiles. Once important military weapons, they are now used mostly for hunting and sports shooting.
