This is the third such killing in Western Australia in 4 months. People are asking "what is going on"? You mention anything about the bible and they scoff. So sad people who dont know Jehovah are so lost with no hope. Its hard to deal with you know the truth let alone when you do not. Poor babies :(

The man accused of massacring his family in Perth stayed in the home for several days after the killings, police allege.

Anthony Harvey, 24, has been charged with murdering his wife and their three children on September 3, six days before the bodies were found. 

Perth Magistrates Court heard via video link yesterday that he is accused of murdering his mother-in-law the following day.

 

Harvey appeared in court in Karratha, 1400km north of Perth in the Pilbara region, in jeans and a blue T-shirt and spent much the time with his head down. 

He did not speak other than to confirm his name and that he understood the charges. 

He is accused of killing Mara Harvey, 42, their three-year-old daughter Charlotte, twin two-year-old girls Alice and Beatrix and Ms Harvey's mother Beverley Quinn, 74.

Mr Harvey was remanded in custody to appear again in court on September 19. The accused is expected to fly back to Perth today or tomorrow.

 

WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson confirmed several weapons were recovered from the home including knives and a blunt instrument.

It is understood a television was still playing when police arrived at the property in Bedford in Perth’s north-east, on Sunday.

Mr Harvey allegedly left the home to travel north before handing himself in at the police station in Pannawonica, about 16 hours' drive away.

After the court appearance, relatives of the Quinns spoke of their grief.

 

Ms Harvey's sister and Ms Quinn's daughter Taryn paid tribute to each of the victims.

"We would firstly like to thank everyone for their help, support and kind wishes during this extremely dark and difficult time," she said in a statement through WA Police.

"There are no words to explain the emptiness and loss that we are feeling."

 

She described Charlotte as an "energetic, bubbly confident little girl", while "Alice was outgoing, adventurous and cheeky" and "Beatrix was at times a little bit more quiet but gave the biggest hugs".

Taryn said her sister "loved being a mum and she loved her girls". 

"She was so proud of each of them and was doing a great job of raising them.  Her girls were her world," the statement read.

Ms Quinn was remembered as "a kind hearted, caring mother and grandmother"

I did read the grim details to see if this actually had something to do with us. 

Nope.

Anymore, is see headlines, some unspeakable, most heartbreaking. I read no further. In fact, I try to move away, as soon as possible. I’m 

not pretending such doesn’t happen. I just don’t want the details. 

I want to age without sharp corners, and have an obedient heart!

I know what you mean. The world has become so abhorrent that it gets too much. This particularly upset me tho, and the fact that it’s happening so often too. Satan is busy

It was a bit of a shock when I first heard about this because I used to live in that road before I moved to where I live now and it was just a few houses up from where this happened .. this was at 174 and we lived in 248, so not far at all. The house I was living in belongs to my son, it is a rental property of his, so I wanted to make sure it wasn't his house it happened in.

Yes, this is such a tragedy, on the back of two others in recent months.  Hoping some good-hearted people take an interest in the message of the Good News to find the best way to deal with these terrible domestic tragedies.  They are only going to increase.  Without the answers the Bible gives us, there is no comfort in this world.

Though this is a separate and unrelated news story, the same police officers had to deal with this sad incident as well:  Five boys running away from police after suspected burglaries in the area near the Swan River, two of which drowned trying to swim across.  

 

Commissioner Dawson revealed the police officers involved in Monday's incident were from the same station that dealt with the mass murder crime scene at the Bedford house.

"It's always been difficult, and I've found this personally myself, when you are attending to matters which involve the loss of young lives," he said.

"Any loss of life of course is tragic. But I know it affected me, and it affects every officer that has to deal with it, with younger people and infants involved. They are particularly difficult situations to deal with."  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-12/family-reeling-death-of-boy-in-swan-river-after-police-chase/10236562

 

Nothing more to say, just very sad.  They are just so lost.

Things really have escalated from bad to worse. I wonder how bad Jehovah will let it get before he steps in. The governing body have told us that we shouldnt expect things to get so bad that people are forced to admit we are living in the last days. I dont think we are far off that. We really need Gods Kingdom asap!

I agree with you Shannon!  That is exactly what the Governing Body relayed to us, and it is

barreling towards the breaking point.  Viewing the scene of this world, at this moment in

time, it is abhorrent, atrocious, gruesome and horrid!  It simply cannot get much more

ghastly before Jehovah says enough!
