Hawe family murder inquest: Psychotic dad Alan Hawe killed to hide secret shame as details of mental illness revealed

Details of mass killer Alan Hawe’s secret shame look set to remain private after his suicide notes were left unread in a coroner’s court.

He had detailed in a three page, handwritten letter his reasons for taking the lives of his wife and children and his subsequent suicide.

A copy of his letter which referred to information about his “fall from grace” was handed to a jury sitting in his inquest, but the details were not made public.

The jury of six women and one man concluded teacher Clodagh Hawe, 39, and her sons, Liam, 14, Niall, 11 and six-year-old Ryan, had all been unlawfully killed in their home in August 2016.

And they said Hawe, who killed his family using his bare hands, two knives and an axe, took his own life.

The jury foreman delivered the verdict, her voice trembling with emotion.

Following the case, Clodagh’s mother Mary Coll and sister

Las Vegas Shooting: Investigators Grapple With Gunman’s ‘Secret Life’

The fire chief wondered, ‘Are we under a Mumbai-style attack?’

Chief Greg Cassell of the Clark County Fire Department said on Thursday that several factors complicated the department’s response to the mass shooting, but he praised the emergency responders as heroic.

“We had a lot of challenges with this event,” Mr. Cassell said at a news conference. Wounded concertgoers fled to various hotels and called 911 from there, he said. “By the time it got relayed, it was ‘There’s a shooter at this location,’ ” he said. “It was, ‘People were shot.’ ”

Typically, all 911 calls from a single event would be linked, he said. But because of the confusion on Sunday night, operators logged the calls as coming from 32 separate incidents, each of which needed to be investigated. Mr. Cassell said they wondered, “Are we under a Mumbai-style attack, where we’ve

Las Vegas sheriff: Mass killer led a ‘secret life’ before attack


Lawyer: Gunman’s girlfriend knew nothing of Las Vegas plot

‘Bombshell: Women and Terror’ author Mia Bloom provides insight on ‘The Story.’

The Las Vegas gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history spent decades stockpiling guns and living a “secret life” that investigators may never be able to fully understand, police say.

Clark County, Nev., Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Wednesday that it was only logical to “make the assumption” that Stephen Paddock had “some help at some point” in pulling off Sunday’s massacre.

As evidence, Lombardo

Stephen Paddock: ‘Secret life’ of mass murderer has left police …

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock led a secret life which has left police struggling to find a motive for the mass shooting by a man they described simply as “disturbed and dangerous”.

Hundreds of officers have spent days trying to build a profile of the high-stakes gambler wh, over a period of decades, built up a massive arsenal of weapons before the high-rise massacre.

They said he had “evaluated” every part of the attack which they found “troubling”, before he opened fire on revellers at a concert on Sunday, leaving 58 dead and some 500 injured.

But as they pore over his life for clues, they have struggled to get beyond the superficial image of a man who had no known criminal record.

Those closest to him have failed to give police any insight into his mindset– with his girlfriend Marilou Danley calling him a “kind, caring, quiet man”.

His brother Eric Paddock also appeared to be of no help

Spree killer Gary Sampson allowed to read juror’s secret letter

BOSTON – A spree killer sentenced to death for one of three murders he committed more than 15 years ago will be allowed to read a secret letter written by one of the jurors who delivered the sentence earlier this month.

But under an order issued late last week by federal Judge Leo Sorokin, the letter will remain under seal and out of public view as copies are provided to prosecutors and defense attorneys representing Gary Lee Sampson, a former drifter from Abington who has admitted to killing two men on the South Shore and a third in New Hampshire in a four-day crime spree in 2001. Sorokin had allowed the note to be kept in the non-public record of the case after it was discovered tucked between the pages of the jury’s verdict forms two weeks ago.
