Fathers' Day Tragedy

Further to my post about the murder of a service processor and attempted murder of his two children by a father in the States the Herald reports the sad story of a father who killed himself and his two children in north Wales on Father's Day after the man was apparently involved in a dispute with his wife.

Dr Alex Yellowlees, consultant psychiatrist and medical director of the Priory Hospital in Glasgow, explains in this Guardian article from November 2006 the motives of the men Americans call 'family annihilators'. Most experts agree that it is almost impossible to foresee and prevent such tradgedies.
