Lennox was suspicious of Malcolm and Donalbain because after the death of their father both of the boys fled the country. He felt that if they were innocent of the crime, they would have stayed in Scotland to determine who had murdered King Duncan.

I agree with the first answer. Also that exactly the day before Duncan had crowned Malcolm as his successor and he thought that the sons must have plotted the murder and have planned to come back and take the throne once everything has calmed down..
