    I'm thinking its a possibility that there could have had a suicide pact between the 3 of them.

    That stands out as the oddest thing to say.

    Those comments and they way he speaks them makes me feel like he did this. Its like he is letting everyone know just in case he is found out that it was 'peaceful' Also the comments about where the youngest was sleeping. With that it's as though he is making out he didn't know the placement of people in the house. I know I'm not explaining this properly but in my head it sends my hinky meter into a spin....

    Both of those comments bother me also, but perhaps he is just trying to convince himself they had peaceful deaths.

    What does them being Jehovah's Witness*have anything to do with this? No, I am not one but have plenty of friends that are, there is nothing in there beliefs that would ever have them doing this. Just like any other religion you will always have those that are more extreme.

    Yep, thats right, you get extremists in all religions.

    I am wondering why commentators are pointing out the ex husband is Jehovas Witness?

    Why?

    The television statement by stalking exhusband seemed well versed and somewhat scripted.

    *Not implying he is the shooter

    There are other recent news articles outside the scope of this incident.

    Was it a patriachal act?

    Will the remaining son receive the 30 acres or so of land?

    Not sure what Jehovah Witness think about murder and suicide, but they do believe that believers will rise from the dead and live forever

    Is there a full unedited video of AC’s speech anywhere?

    A leading WA psychologist says the extraordinary statement made by Aaron Cockman, the father of four children slain in their beds near Margaret River last Friday, pointed to a perfect storm of shock, grief and trauma.

    Dr James McCue, a lecturer in psychology and criminology at Edith Cowan University, said some of the comments made by Mr Cockman were an indication the father was suffering a range of emotions.

    “He is obviously a man who is grieving and I think it is not just grief but it is also a traumatic loss,” Dr McCue told WAtoday.

    “To lose all of your kids ... all in one instance, in one moment, that is very difficult for any individual to actually grasp or comprehend or get their head around.

    “Shock isn’t something that wears off quickly,” he said.

    “Shock is defined as people experiencing almost a disconnection or a sense of what we call 'derealisation' from what’s going on around them.

    “And that is that suddenness, that actually our mind hasn’t caught up with the seriousness or the gravity of what has actually happened.

    Dr McCue said it was important for people to realise people grieved and reacted to traumatic events in different ways.

    A fundraising campaign for the funerals of the seven members of the Miles family has begun, as shocked friends pay tribute to the two women killed, Katrina and her mother Cynda.

    (The campaign) ....... is aiming to raise $40,000 for the family to help with preparations for the funerals of Katrina and her children, Taye, 13, Rylan, 12, Ayre, 10 and Kayden, 8, who were well known within Margaret River's home-schooling community.

    I have told my children, if they give me a funeral, I will come back to haunt them. Some funerals now are video productions. That is why they cost so much. I hate it.

    I get it. But you still have to pay for a pine box and a cremation service. The ‘bare bones’ one around here is $3,000. They won’t be allow to stuff you in their own fireplace for free. That’s frowned on. [emoji51]

    I bet he was in shock. He was probably medicated also but his words seem well versed.
    *not implying he was the shooter.

    The psychologists words are not a revelation

    Despite sharing on Facebook last month that her ex 'does not stop stalking (her)', police have confirmed that Mr Cockman is not a suspect.

    He may not be a nice person. He may have been an abusive partner. He may have been a real pain in the neck. But it seems he didn't murder his ex-wife, children and ex-mother in law. Katrina's own father apparently did that.

    There were legal recourses to take, if the ex was that much of a pain in the neck.

    But Katrina's father decided to control all of their destinies, and killed them all. That is shameful, horrible, misguided, uncalled for, and the saddest thing.

    As I said before, familicide is the most unfair situation. Even more unfair than drunken abuse, putting a person down repeatedly, making someone's life difficult. Because there is no escaping familicide. No chance for a new life. They are now all deceased.

    You could always donate your body to the body farm in NSW? I don't think it costs anything but you do need to apply and fill out paperwork.
