Three children found stabbed to death in a beauty spot yesterday are feared to have been  murdered by their father.

Ceri Fuller, 35, is thought to have killed son Sam, 12, and daughters Becka, eight, and Charlotte, seven, before throwing himself 80ft to his death in a nearby disused quarry.
The day before the tragedy, the children’s mother, Ruth, wrote about a ‘completely bonkers’ mid-life crisis on Facebook.

She said: ‘Whew, that’s my midlife crisis over with then – and only a few completely bonkers things done.’

The 34-year-old added: ‘Still, very glad of the urge to reach out to people, loved that.’ The comment had been ‘liked’ by Mr Fuller’s sister, Abigail.

A huge manhunt was launched for Mr Fuller, a molecular and cellular biology graduate, after he vanished from the family home in Milkwall, Gloucestershire last week.
The children failed to turn up to school on Friday, and Mr Fuller was absent from his job as a production supervisor at papermill Glatfelter in nearby Lyndey.

All four bodies were found 75 miles away in countryside near Shrewsbury yesterday after Mr Fuller’s red Land Rover was spotted parked in the area.
Police believe he killed the children and himself on Thursday – before they were reported missing.
Last night a family member said Mr Fuller had been in ‘an awful state’ last week but was too upset to give further details.
