Screaming husband seen running from house after finding wife and child dead
A neighbour has described watching a man running out of a home in Melbourne’s north after finding a woman and three-year-old child dead inside.
The man, believed to be the husband of the dead 39-year-old woman, reportedly found the bodies on Sunday afternoon.
Police and emergency services were called to a home at Ashkanasy Avenue, Pascoe Vale, about 5.30pm on Sunday.
A young neighbour Mohammed Assad said it was “really distressing” to watch the man run from the home screaming.
“He came home, he walked inside and then came out and just started screaming,” Mr Assad, 18, told the Herald Sun.
“You just wouldn’t expect something like this from that household, they were a friendly family.”
Mr Assad also described the little girl as “a happy and active child”.
