The horrors that David McGreavy inflicted on the Ralphs left a deep dent in their relationship, hence their divorce not long after the murders. The ability to comment on our stories is a privilege, not a right, however, and that privilege may be withdrawn if it is abused or misused. Finding no answer, the officers tried around the back of the house, and it was there by torchlight that they made the most unimaginable discovery ever.

David never gave the police a motive for his actions, only said that it was Samtha’s crying that set him off. Paul had been strangled, Dawn was found with her throat cut, and Samantha died from a compound fracture to the skull. It should come as no surprise that she was horrified that McGreavy was released from prison in 2019.As a result, it became increasingly difficult for David and his siblings to build worthwhile bonds and friendships with other children so they only really had one another. The police patrol car that was dispatched had no idea what horrifying scenes they were about to witness, once they arrived several officers were left completely shaken with one even vomiting.

David’s arrival meant that when in September 1972, Elsie gave birth to Samantha, there were six people living in just one, small, two-bedroom house. But when police asked McGreavy why he killed three innocent children, his reply was chillingly nonchalant. Concerned neighbours had heard several bangs and the sound of Samantha crying, and noticed a succession of lights in the house being turned on, then off again. It is one of many reasons the childrens' mother Dorothy Urry said she believes he should never be set free. Though he struggled to hold down a job and was regarded as a cocky young man who liked to drink, David appeared to show a better side at the Ralphs' home in Worcester.

I don't know if he's expressed remorse, I don't know if he now realises the gravity of the offences that he committed. Despite being jobless and broke, he started to fantasise about having a big, traditional, and therefore expensive, wedding.
