(Newser) – A distraught British dad fatally stabbed his toddler daughters and wife, then hanged himself from a banister in the family home, according to law enforcement authorities. The bodies were found by the girls' visiting grandmother, who discovered her granddaughters, ages 1 and 2, tucked under a duvet on a bed, neighbors said. "All my babies are dead," screamed the grandmother as she ran sobbing from the home seeking help. The father, 32-year-old Andrew Case, boasted about his family on Facebook. "I got married in 2000. We have two beautiful daughters, Phoebe and Nereya," he wrote.

Case was a delivery driver and his wife, Vicki, ran a nursery school, reports Sky News. Case was planning to run a charity marathon next week. The couple seemed content and had no apparent financial problems, and the family had just returned to their home in southern England from a vacation, said a friend. "I'd seen Andy pushing Phoebe in a buggy," she said. "We walked for a little while together. He seemed perfectly happy." (Read more crime stories.)
