Police want to trace Bernadette’s son, Peter Fox, and have advised members of the public not to approach him.

The family of the women said they were “absolutely devastated” by the deaths.

Det Ch Insp Dave Rooney said the motive for the killings was “unclear at this time”.

“We are currently trying to trace Peter Fox, the son of Bernadette, as he could have information which could assist with our investigation,” he said.
