Dad stabs to death two daughters, mom; media makes excuses regarding "debt problems" (Fordingbridge, England, United Kingdom)

We have the usual media nonsense here on how poor daddy ANDREW CASE just "snapped" because of money worries. Bull malarkey. It requires a certain sociopathic and evil frame of mind to stab 1- and 2-year-old girls to death, much less their mother. Can you imagine the terror of these babies, especially the last one to be killed, as her sister was stabbed beside her in the same double bed? But reporters just go out of their way to excuse killer daddies, no matter how vicious their actions.


Delivery driver who murdered wife and daughters before hanging himself 'had money worries'

A father who murdered his wife and two daughters before hanging himself had mounting debt problems, it was revealed today.

Andrew Case yesterday inexplicably 'snapped' and stabbed his family to death in their home in a quiet market town.

His daughters, two-year-old Phoebe and one-year-old Nereya, were fatally knifed just a few minutes after the once devoted father had also killed his nursery teacher wife, Vicky, 31.

The 32-year-old then hanged himself at the couple's rented family home.

The delivery driver had been facing insolvency and had been ordered by a court to agree a formal plan to pay back creditors.

There were also claims the couple were worried about money owed on his wife Vicki's credit card.

The managing director of the firm where Mr Case worked today said that the couple had been fighting against the 'pressure of modern society'.

A businessman, Hau Chow, who used to employ Vicky at his Chinese restaurant, said: 'I think maybe they had financial problems because they were renting that house. They had to sell their own house. They were a friendly family and the children were lovely.'

For the past three years he had worked as an HGV delivery driver for the Wiltshire-based company Doccombe European.

Post-mortem examinations were being carried out today. The two girls and their parents were found in their family home in the New Forest village of Fordingbridge yesterday morning.

Mr Case is believed to have slit the children's throats and their mother's before hanging himself.

The grisly discovery was made when the children's 56-year-old grandmother, Linda Haskell, went to the family home only to be confronted by horrific scenes.

A near neighbour of the Case family - 53-year-old Alayna Brooks - described how she saw Mrs Haskell running out of the house screaming: 'They are all dead - my babies are dead!'

The crime shocked the town of Fordingbridge, Hampshire, where at least one young neighbour is thought to have heard a child's screams yesterday morning.

Moments before the emergency services arrived Mrs Brooks ran into the house and was confronted by the body of Mrs Case in the downstairs dining room.

She said: 'The first thing I thought when I saw the woman dead was "are the babies alive?"

'I went upstairs and the man was hanging. I shook his leg and said: "Just wake up - you've got a family!"

'But it was just not happening. It was the most appalling thing I have ever lived through.

'I was distressed and I saw the two little girls side by side in the double bed.

They were dead. It was horrific - they were a beautiful family. The girls were gorgeous.'

The young family had just come back from a week- long holiday in Weymouth.

'They were so loved up,' added Mrs Brooks. 'I would have loved their marriage - they just loved each other.'

The couple, who married in 2000, have lived at the small property for the past few months after moving from their previous home which was also in Fordingbridge.

It is understood grandmother Mrs Haskell normally cared for the children on Mondays while her daughter Vicky ran St Aldhelm's nursery and pre- school in the town.

Friends described her as 'happy go lucky' and someone who was 'never unhappy'.

Yesterday Mrs Haskell was seen weeping in the street as she made a 999 call pleading for help - but paramedics and police who raced to the scene were unable to save her daughter, grandchildren or son-in-law.

South Central Ambulance Service said: 'The doctor reported back from the scene that one adult female and two children were dead and had been stabbed. One male was found hanging.'

The house where the bodies were found is set back from a row of cottages which are next to a stream on the edge of the New Forest.

On his Facebook page Mr Case had recently posted details of the family's holiday to Weymouth.

He said: 'Weymouth here we come! We're going where the sun shines brightly, were (sic) going where the sea is blue. seen it in the movies, let's see if it's true.'

He summed up his life in a brief biography: 'I am 32, I got married in 2000 and have been with my wife, Vicki, for about 15 years. We have two beautiful daughters, Phoebe (two years and a half) and Nereya (one).'

Pictures posted on his page at Easter this year show him playing and sharing chocolate eggs with his laughing daughters.

Case was planning to run a marathon in September in aid of new living quarters for the parents of premature babies looked after at Salisbury Hospital.

Case said his favourite quotation was: 'Sucess is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obsticals which he has overcome.'
But other posts on Facebook point to darker preoccupations.

On June 8 he wrote: 'Time is equal to life. Therefore, waste your time and waste of your life or master your time and master your life... FIN.'
