  • So disturbing… Who would do such a thing??

  • ThY is so terrible. I hope they will be ok and get all the counselling they will need


  • Whomever hurt these children needs to be put away.


  • shocking – more details please when they come to light.

    • I am none the wiser with more details… the man killed the mother and hurt the children? Who were the children staying with? She went to Dallas and died?

      • I don’t think they mean Dallas in USA. It was the Dallas Tennis Club Car park in Hepburn Street. The Police need to determine if there is a definite connection between the two cases. A head injury can still at some point become life theatening. There is no indication how serious the bone fractures are. Hopefully they all make a full recovery, Deepest sympathy to the boys and other relatives of the deceased Mother.
