    Australia - Luca Janzow, 3, stabbed to death, dad charged, Adelaide, 8 July 2014

    July 08, 2014 5:43PM


    A THREE-YEAR-OLD boy is dead and his father has been charged with murder after a stabbing in suburban Adelaide this morning.

    The boy suffered numerous stab wounds and, despite frantic efforts by ambulance crews and medical staff at Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital, he died from his injuries

    Emergency crews were responding to an accident on Gorge Road, at the intersection of Hockley Terrace at Athelstone, about 9am when another car with the injured boy flagged down police, The Advertiser reported.

    South Australian Police confirmed they were approached by a man and shortly after found the seriously injured boy.

    The father, a 36-year-old Stepney man, was taken to Royal Adelaide Hospital with a neck wound that was possibly self-inflicted

    Adelaide Advertiser reported the boy was stabbed multiple times by his father, 36, at their home in Stepney - about eight kilometres away - before he was put in a car and driven away.

    'It's a tragic set of circumstances and our sympathies go out to the family,' a SA police spokesman said earlier on Tuesday.

    'It was also a difficult incident for the police and the ambulance officers.'


    At this stage of the investigation, there is no indication of any history of domestic violence. However, we will continue to examine that as the investigation progresses,' he said.

    The man had left the family home in the affluent inner-*eastern suburb of Stepney at about 8am with one of his two young sons under unusual circumstances.

    His wife had called police to report that her husband and son were missing.

    “She was concerned enough to go to the police and say, ‘I have concerns about the welfare of my husband and my son’,” Superintendent Adcock said.

    “We know this crime has not just impacted family, friends of the boy and police who attended the scene — it has also shocked the community.”

    The family lived together and ran a landscaping business. Police last night asked the media not to name the family

    Seems they've changed their mind about not naming them (not sure how it works but I doubt the media would go against the police, unless it leaked through some other means and they all have to leap on it to stay current).

    These sorts of things really stick with me, especially when there's no evidence of previous domestic problems (not unheard of though obviously, as most of us here would be aware).

    David Janzow, 36, was charged with murder late on Tuesday, before being taken into surgery at the Royal Adelaide Hospital for a neck wound which police say was self-inflicted.

    He was remanded in custody in a bedside court hearing this afternoon, awaiting a psychiatric assessment.

    We're fairly confident the actual vehicle was the actual crime scene" he said.

    He said it was too early to say whether mental health issues were involved in the tragedy.

    I wonder why the mother thought the son was in danger. Not known to police, no issues with family violence. What went wrong?

    I just wanted to say how scary I find this. I know looks can be deceiving and all that, but what would cause such an apparently "normal" father and husband do this? What did he say or do to make mum call the police?
    I guess there won't be anymore updates until September. Rest in peace baby boy

    So, so sad for Luca's mum, brother and family. Poor Luca, another child who suffered an horrific death at the hands of a parent who is suppose to love and protect them.


    I hope DJ receives a very long sentence is all I can say.
