  • "Carol - it could have been anything, mother of disabled son unable to cope, family feud turns nasty. but it certainly sounds like what you've described.

    Out of interest, didn't your name have a hyphen in it before? Have you had troube with the Echo's log in? I get it on so many occasions.

    Echo - you state Basildon in the headline, and Billericay in the article. Geography fail again.

    Finally whatever the circumstances, two people have lost their lives in one of the most violent ways possible. my condolences to any family and friends of each."
