A 30-year-old man has reportedly committed suicide after killing his wife in the presence of their three underage children. The incident happened in Oldbury, United Kingdom..
The three children are all under the age of eight.
It was gathered that concerned neighbours called the police after they heard the cries of the children from the house the family lived in.
One of the neighbours who asked not to be named said: “One of the children was running on the road crying that her mummy was bleeding.
“She must’ve been about seven or eight knocked on the neighbour’s door. There’s a small baby and another child who live there and were all taken out.”
“I left the house about 1.30pm and came back at 4pm and there were police cars everywhere and forensics.
“The family always kept themselves to themselves so we didn’t see them very much. It’s a shock and it’s scary but you don’t know what going on behind closed doors.
Another neighbor, who alerted the police around 2pm on Saturday said: “This is a truly tragic incident: it’s understood the woman was violently attacked before the offender took his own life.
“The timeline of exactly what happened is unclear but we believe the two people died during the morning.
“There were three children, including a small baby, present at the address when officers made the discovery − they are being looked after by loved ones and will receive specialist support.”
