Sian Blake, the voice actress who worked on 2013's "Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn," was found dead along with her two sons on London on January 6.

According to reports from law enforcers, the three individuals died due to head and neck injuries.

People.com reported that Blake and her two sons, eight-year-old Zachary Bilal Kent-Blake and four-year-old Amon Ben Kent-Blake, have been missing December 13 if last year. On December 16, an official police report was filed regarding their disappearance.

Then, earlier this month, the bodies of the three individuals were discovered buried in the garden of their home. The law enforcers immediately named Blake's partner, freelance stylist Arthur Simpson-Kent, as the primary suspect in the murder case. However, a photographed obtained by the police revealed Simpson-Kent at the Kotoka International Airport leaving the U.K. to travel to Ghana on December 19, BBC has learned.

According to Ava Blake, the victim's sister, Sian had already considered ending her relationship with Simpson-Kent. This further supported Simpson-Kent's possible link to the disappearance and death of Blake and sons.

"We are continuing to appeal for any information about the movements of Arthur Simpson-Kent who was last seen by police officers at his home in Erith on 16 December," Detective Superintendent Paul Monk of the Scotland Yard's Homicide and Major Crime Command said in a statement.

"This is a fast moving investigation and we are actively pursuing a number of lines of enquiry," he added. "If anyone has any information that they think might help our investigation when I would urge to get in contact with us."

Using the details they have regarding Simpson-Kent's possible location, the Scotland Yard coordinated with the Ghana police. On January 9, he was arrested by local law enforcers while drinking from a coconut in a beach, The Telegraph reported.

According to eyewitnesses, Simspon-Kent arrived in the country before Christmas and even participated in a New Year's Eve party held at the African Rainbow hotel.

"[Simpson-Kent] was a very interesting and clever person," the anonymous tipster and owner of the Arena Beach Lodge in Busua said. "We had a good time together. He didn't exactly say he was on holiday. After I looked him up on the web I called police and told them where to find him."

Simpson-Kent is expected to be turned over to UK authorities within the next few days for questioning.

Aside from her voice work as Yugiri Mistwalker in "Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn," Blake also appeared in various British films and television programs including "EastEnders."
