This is the first picture of a family slaughtered by a shop-fitter who then casually washed his car before taking his own life.
Richard Smith, 37, was seen cleaning the vehicle outside the family's detached home early on Sunday morning - a day after he is believed to have killed his wife Clair, 36, Ben, nine, and one-year-old Aaron.
Today, the first picture of the family has been released - and it shows the four seemingly happy in a touching portrait.
It comes as it emerged Mrs Smith and her two sons had suffered stab wounds. Mrs Smith died from a single stab wound to her chest, as did Aaron. Ben suffered a stab wound to the chest but died from suffocation.
