A gruesome quadruple murder occurred in south London, United Kingdom on Monday morning when four Jamaican family members were fatally stabbed to death inside of their home.
The four family members were reported to be a woman in her 60s name Dolet Hill, along with her husband, their daughter and granddaughter. Hill was a former National Health Service (NHS) worker, who was from Lyssons, St Thomas.
The horrific incident is said to have happened around 1:40 AM on Monday when the Metropolitan police were alerted of screams coming from a home on Delaford Road in Bermonsey in south London.
Reportedly, when the police arrived at the location, they had to force their way into the house which is where they found the four individuals bloody from what appeared to be stab wounds. Shortly after, they were all pronounced dead.
The Metropolitan police have since arrested a man in his 20s who is suspected to be connected to the murder and known by the victims.
According to Hill’s niece, Venecia Reid, the deceased family members who were “really close”, had “originally moved to the UK from Jamaica”. Reid described her aunt as saying she was a “very nice” Christian woman who was a housekeeper at a hospital. Her aunt was recently diagnosed with cancer and her daughter was a district nurse. Reid told the Independent that Hill and her husband have another daughter and she is the person who “raised the concern” to the police about the incident at the house.
