A Serious Case Review has been published into the deaths of a mother and her two children who died in Devon last year. Katherine Hooper killed herself and her five year old son Joshua when she jumped from Haytor with him of her shoulders in July 2013. Police later found her two year year old Samuel dead at the family home in Paignton.
Today a report into the handling of the case by Torbay Social Services has been published. It's concluded that the deaths "could not have been avoided" but has highlighted areas from improvement. These include closer working between different agencies and making sure that effective supervision is available for staff involved in Safeguarding work.
The finding have been welcomed by the The Independent Chair of Torbay Safeguarding Children’s Board, David Taylor. He said “This was a very tragic event and I would like to reassure everyone that the Safeguarding Board and all its partners take the recommendations in this review extremely seriously.
“As the review states these deaths could not have been avoided, but we can always improve on what we do. As such, the Board will continue to review and raise the quality of practice in Torbay to ensure partner agencies continue to improve their integrated working." An inquest in September had concluded that Katherine Hooper had killed herself and unlawfully killed Joshua. It returned an open verdict on Samuel.
