Loudon, before making the terrible gesture, wrote his wife one last message, telling her that she would be better off without him. The man was severely depressed and the restrictions of the pandemic had worsened his mental state. Before Covid had arrived the diagnosis of autism for his son, the man complained that the management of the child was very complex and having to stay indoors for months did not help the family.

The man anticipated his return home from vacation, leaving his wife and other children for a few days. He has planned everything in detail and wrote letters to friends and relatives to motivate his gesture. The tragedy took place at Loudon’s home in Cairndhu Drive, Kidderminster, on August 13 last year and investigations into the case are closing these days.

The wife said she saw her husband downstairs, who had asked her to go home earlier because she was not in the right mood, when then she noticed from the security cameras that her son had been in bed for hours without ever changing position she alerted the authorities realizing that something was wrong. The woman explained that in the note the man told her that she could not leave her child with him, that it would be too hard for her: “I loved my husband, but he shouldn’t have taken my child away from me, I will never forgive him for this”.
