Friends and neighbours say they are shocked that a Paignton woman may have killed herself and her two children. Katherine Hooper fell from Hay Tor on Dartmoor with her 5-year-old son.
Her 2-year-old son was later found dead at her home in Paignton.
An investigation has begun into whether authorities failed the 24-year-old.
