AVO alone will not stop delusional people from horrific violence. Where sufficient violent history should be AVO condition to attend at least 10 CBT sessions, with a psych in 1st instance. Non-compliance = breach leading to jail. This can be quickly rolled out, get it done.

What kind of a man could even contemplate burning his little kids to death, let alone actually do it. Unimaginable.

Media has to use the word allegedly due to the legal side. They need to remain impartial and not be judge and jury and convict the predator until the final judgement from the coroner or courts.

Very tragic ! do what you want to yourself , but how could any sane human do that to their kids. I don't care if your wife was a bitch, gold digger, or shagged your brother. It has nothing to do with your kids, and there is no excuse on earth for what you done!

Enough of this allegedly. There’s no upcoming trial. And it’s Hannah Clarke.

No allegedly here. Premeditated by a monster.

There’s no allegedly here. He murdered his wife and angelic children. May he burn in hell

I would question who his Divorce Lawyer was. Probably, a 25 year old trainee divorce lawyer who didn’t help the situation one bit but probably added to the despair the man was in by not having enough training or proper credentials as a Lawyer.

Allegedly, seriously?


Allegedly? He murdered them in one of the most horrific and brutal ways. Stop with the word play. Call him out, please. Call him out! Enough.

This story makes me feel sick! That poor woman and her beautiful babies 😭 fly high angels!

Good terrible!


Coward, violent animal! The cruelest of acts.

Makes me sick to the core, RIP Mum and little ones, Hell awaiting that 🤬

Devastating 😭

Why ‘allegedly’? He’s dead, not like it’s going to court is it?

He ain’t no father. Weak scum. Those kids trusted you with there lives. The last person they ever expected to hurt them. Having family issues? Walk away but don’t take someone else’s life

“Allegedly” 🖕

How did it get to this. Didn't family and friends see any signs that he had murder in his heart? Such a tragedy and a horrific way to die.

Crazy man


Funny how the media are putting a different spin on it when the man is at fault. Remember when that lady killed her kids a while back by driving head-on into a truck? Portrayed as a tragic event and so sad for her, blah blah blah.

Where is he and what's his status right now? If alive then you aussies are losing your grip. In png he would be in several pieces by now

Reminds me of Chris watts

How about 'allegedly murdered them in the most horrific and violent way'

Allegedly? Journalism is at an all time low. Better to get the actual news elsewhere.

I've read all about this and it is shocking to the core. Regardless of anyone's mental state, regardless of a failed marriage or a loss of job & home. The murder of those kids in such a horrendous way is absolutely unforgivable... even for God. RIP to all and condolences. 😢


80% of suicides are male, has it ever made you wonder? More kids are killed by women and mothers than by men, has it ever made you wonder? RIP.

He didnt attack - he killed them in a premeditated plan. Nobody suddenly decides spur of the moment to pour petrol on their family and start a fire.

Coward - a man takes whatever life throws at him and just gets on with it - A Coward murders his estranged family - I weep for our stupid species sometimes.

‘Rest in peace little angels’: Tributes flow for Camp Hill familyTributes are flowing for a “spectacular mother” and her “precious babies” after a horrific car fire in Brisbane that has shaken the community. Such a sad and horrible event. May they rest in peace. I truly feel sad tonight for hearing this news... It wasn’t a car fire- they were murdered! There would have been big-time signs about the ongoing domestic violence and it is time that Australians stop turning a blind eye and covering up incidents just because someone is perceived to have some status. Even the first reports really sugarcoated this tragedy.
