Michael Pedersen Found dead with his 2 children in Suspected Murder-Suicide

Two children found dead with their father on a bridleway in Hampshire were fatally stabbed, police have said.

Police believe the man was Michael Pedersen, 51, from Surrey, who was found in Stacey Newton with his children Ben, seven, and Freya, six.

It is thought Mr Pedersen, who was estranged from the children's mother, was visiting his father in Andover.

The children had already been found dead before their mother reported them missing on Sunday evening, police said.

Mr Pedersen was living in Chertsey, Surrey, while his children were living in Ashford, Surrey.

The three bodies were found outside next to car by a dog walker at about 18:15 BST. Read More
