    Police are hunting an elderly man after a vicious home ax attack in an Australian town that seriously wounded a female police officer and left her mother and two young children dead.
    Police are seeking to question John Walsh, the father of wounded Senior Constable Shelly Walsh, The Daily Telegraph reported.
    Shelly Walsh is in a serious but stable condition for at Orange Base Hospital. Her two children, a 7-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl, and her mother, Mabel, were killed in the attack inside her home at Cowra.
    It is feared John Walsh, in his late 70s, is heading to the Newcastle area and may commit more violence.

    Very sad, I cannot understand a grandfather killing his wife, grandchildren and injuring his daughter with an axe, totally gobsmacked.

    They have found the suspect, thankfully he wasnt found heading towards Newcastle, I live only an hour away. More at link.

    What?!?

    Oh man, just when you think you cannot be shocked.
    I wonder if he sufferes from dementia? Not that it would excuse him from his acts.

    OMG, you KNOW they suffered horribly!! One cut with an axe wouldn't kill,most likely. They were hacked to death.
    I hope he is punished to the full extent of the law- I don't care if it turns out he's terminally ill or has senile dementia or what.

    I always think that I cannot be shocked anymore than I have been by the brutality I read on here day after day, but I was wrong. God bless that poor woman. I hope she is able to heal physically and emotionally and that grandpa is punished to the max!:furious:

    Just heart rendering that he would do this to his wife, his grandkids and daughter. Glad atleast the daughter survived to call it in so he couldn't harm anyone else. I wonder where he was headed next? :detective:
