FICTIONAL: Mother and two children found dead in Paddington

The bodies of a mother (32) and her two children (2 and 4) were discovered this morning at their home in Paddington, suffering cuts around the head sustained by an axe found at the scene, with police treating the investigation as a murder.

A search is ongoing for the husband and father of the victims: local postman John Smith, who was missing from the scene, and failed to return from work this afternoon.

This incident occurred at 11am this morning, with neighbours being the first on scene to find the bodies after hearing loud  noises and arguing coming from within the house.
