Mr Baxter's Facebook profile is littered with pictures and videos of the three children, along with comments he"loves them to the moon and back" and"daddy misses you all".

This was not an incident nor accident - it was murder and should be reported as such.

It wasn't a 'horrific incident' SBS, it was an act of extreme violence. The father murdered their children and Hannah. Fix this headline!

Horrific accident, deepest condolences.

‘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.
