    How strange..... murder suicide from what I'm reading, but a stabbing suicide? Perhaps a self-cutting injury described as a stabbing? IDK

    Hm. They were slashed not stabbed, and no mention in the last couple articles of knives found. Was a broken glass or bottle used? What else might it have been? Also, police appealing for those who may have been phoned or texted - were the women found without their cell devices, which surely might be checked to know who was called or what was sent and when? Did the budget motel have CCTV cameras? Evidently so - police have ruled out a third party and at least, one would think, have a reason for doing so.

    A mystery. The overnight stay in a budget inn less than 20 miles from their home; the apparent journey to Dunbartonshire, not far from either Paisley or Greenock, before arriving at the latter. The eight+ hour gap between check-in and time they were next seen. The six fatal hours afterward, which resulted in both of their deaths.

    From the article:
    "Police said the women were not stabbed but would not be drawn on the nature of their injuries"

    Mysterioser and mysterioser ........(I know that's not a real word)
    No need to spend money or time on reading mystery novels; just come to Websleuths where truth really is "stranger than fiction" every day.

    Not sure but I'd doubt it; the place is described as a budget hotel and those generally just have the hallway entry. Don't know though.

    NO third person? So did the mom and daughter have a fight? Stabbing. Or slashing each other?
    So strange...the poor husband / dad. :(

    Um, what? First knives and stabbing, then no mention of knives, but slashing, then.....this. This plus the cutting? All accounts say they were found with "serious injuries." Or did the press jump the shark here and invent the situation, or....well, what. Key word: "suspected."

    Does this not belong under " Crimes In The News"?

    I have been following the story on the UK newspapers online and it is definitely a crime scene with both women now dead. Even if one was homicide and the other suicide, criminal acts.

    (Note- I thought the coverage was bizarre as well).

    Leaving it here for now as there has been nothing concrete reported that a crime was committed, as it could well have been a double suicide.

    Still baffling though.

    So much not known....where were they in the eight hours between check-in at the hotel (only 17 miles from their home) and the time they were next - and last - seen?
