Shock as couple are found dead at home
A SHOCKED community has rallied to support the three sons of the couple found dead at their Carbis Bay home.
Mystery still surrounds the death of Derisa Trenchard, 50, and her husband Jonathan Trenchard, 48. They were found at their home in Polwithen Drive on Wednesday last week.
They were last seen alive walking their King Charles spaniels as usual at around 8.45am on Wednesday, shortly after seeing youngest son Joel off to school.
Police have said they are not looking for anybody else in connection with their inquiry.

Teenager Joel is a pupil at St Ives School and his two grown-up brothers, Josh and Chris, also went there.
Head teacher Richard Schofield said pupils and staff at the school immediately organised a collection to support the Trenchard boys.
Mr Schofield said: "Obviously the school community and the St Ives community has rallied around tremendously in terms of providing support for Joel and his two brothers, Josh and Chris.
"It's really early days. We're hoping the three boys will remain together in the hope that the eldest, Chris, will be able to take on guardianship.
"It's very much an emerging picture and everybody has been tremendous.
"The staff in the first day alone raised £1,000 to be able to help the boys because they were caught in a situation that they never anticipated and were not able to deal with, certainly financially.
"Josh and Chris have come through the school and then gone on to university; they'd graduated and then come back to live and work in the area.
"I don't think there was any obvious reason why this has happened. It's come as a complete shock."
The owners of the Ocean Grill in St Ives, where Chris works, have also rallied to support the boys.
Kate Evans from the Wharf Road eaterie said: "Following the news of the tragic deaths of a mother and father in Carbis Bay this week we're having a collection for the three boys left behind.
"We at the Ocean Grill and the local community of St Ives would really love to help these boys."
Police told The Cornishman on Tuesday they were still gathering evidence surrounding the circumstances of the deaths.
