Aged care volunteer found dead at home

The identities of a man and woman found dead inside a Perth home have been revealed, as homicide detectives continue their investigation into the deaths.

The bodies of Mark, 64, and Lesley Stillman, 67, were found inside their Carramar home on Golf Links Drive about 10.40am on Sunday.

Officers had been called to the home, in the city’s northeast, to conduct a welfare check.

Police said the pair were known to each other.

Detectives and forensic officers were seen at the home on Monday and canvassed the street as they carried out their investigation.

“Investigators can assure the community there are no concerns for the general public’s safety,” a police spokesperson said.

The West Australian reports the pair, who had four children, were married but separated several years ago – though they were both living in the home.

One of the bodies was reportedly discovered inside the garage.

Ms Stillman was a volunteer with Guide Dogs WA and aged care provider Amana Living.

Chief of Amana Living Stephanie Buckland said the team was saddened to hear about her death.

"Lesley trained, then volunteered with Amana Living for a short period in 2021, and was a valued member of a close-knit team," she said.

"On behalf of Amana Living, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Lesley's family and friends during this very difficult time."

Police urge anyone with information, including CCTV and dashcam footage, to contact Crime Stoppers.
