Ben Green Wiki – Ben Green Biography
Ben Green was a dad of three who stabbed his much younger 22-year-old girlfriend to death before turning the knife on himself, post-mortem reports indicate.
Green is the only suspect in the murder of Maddie Durdant-Hollamby in Kettering, Northamptonshire.
Both their bodies were found at his home shortly after 1 pm on Friday after Maddie’s parents raised the alarm, having not heard from her in days.
Her family friends said she ‘wasn’t that happy with Ben and had spoken about ending the relationship’.
He was 41 years old.
Green was a marketing director who was found dead with a 22-year-old dancer in a suspected murder-suicide that had a “string of young girlfriends,” it emerged last night.
The bodies of Maddie Durdant-Hollamby and Ben Green, 41, were found by cops at a house in Kettering, Northamptonshire, shortly before 1 pm on Friday after a report of concern for her welfare.
Detectives probing the case said they are treating the death of marketing executive, Maddie from Wimblington, Cambridgeshire, as murder.
But officers said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with her death.
Maddie and Green are believed to have been in a relationship after meeting in the marketing department at Alumasc Water Management Solutions.
Maddie shared her time between Green’s place and the large £700,000 family detached home.
Northamptonshire Police have said there was no known history of domestic abuse, and friends of the couple told The Sun they had been pleased together.
On Sunday, police were still visible at the property after forensics had spent hours combing for clues.
One of Green’s former neighbors, who did not wish to be named, said he had a string of young girlfriends before Maddie, who would visit him at his home.
The woman, who lived next door to Green for 18 months, said: “He would have different women coming over a lot.
“They were similar to her [Maddie]. They would be young, aged between 22 and 30. He had at least three girlfriends. They would last about six months and then another one would appear.”
She said he was “very difficult” to get to know and dubbed him “arrogant.”
She added: “Sometimes I would say hi, and he wouldn’t even respond.
“He would say hi to my husband, but not to me. He would look at me as if to say, ‘why are you talking to me?’
“It’s shocking to find out what happened. It made me feel very sick.”
Northamptonshire Police detective inspector Nicole Main said this afternoon: ‘While we await a formal identification of Benjamin, we have taken the step of naming him today with the support of his family.
‘We understand he and Maddie had been in a relationship and are working to establish as much as is possible about the circumstances in which they died.
‘This is an unfortunate case, and we ask that the media respect the grief and privacy of both families as they mourn their loved ones.
‘They are overwhelmed with sadness and have asked that they be left in peace at this terribly distressing time.’
