MORE RESEARCH NEEDED ON MURDER-SUICIDES – MENTAL HEALTH EXPERTS

Mental health experts say we need more research into so-called ‘murder suicides’.

The inquest into the deaths of the Hawe family in Cavan yesterday returned a verdict of unlawful killing.

Clodagh Hawe and her three sons were stabbed to death by their father Alan Hawe last year who then took his own life.

There’s been around a dozen murder suicides in this country over the last decade.

Professor of Psychiatry, Patricia Casey, says it’s crucial we study these cases.
