Ex-partner among mourners at killer father’s funeral

First published in News Daily Echo: Photograph of the Author by

HE killed their children, but yesterday grieving mum Kerrie Hughes was among the mourners at the funeral of her former partner David Cass.

Flanked by supporters Kerrie cried uncontrollably as the hearse carrying Cass’s body drew up at Christ Church in Freemantle, Southampton.

Earlier she had handed over a simple bouquet of flowers to be placed at his graveside.

The 20-year-old had vowed to be at the service, having reportedly said she would regret it if she did not, but adding that she would never forgive Cass for what he had done.

The bodies of Ellie, three, and Isobelle, 14 months, were found in a caravan on September 21 in the grounds of a garage where Cass worked and had been living following his split from Kerrie.

Before hanging himself Cass, 33, had phoned Kerrie to tell her the children were asleep forever and that he was going to kill himself.

A post-mortem revealed the children had been smothered to death.

Floral tributes, some in the shape of spanners, the letter ‘D’ and a teddy bear adorned the coffin that was taken into the church by family members.

Following the 20-minute service at the church – just yards from the scene of the tragedy in Paynes Road – mourners went on to Hollybrook Cemetery for the burial.

At the end of the committal red roses were thrown into the grave.

Kerrie is now preparing for the funeral of her children, due to take place tomorrow.

Kerrie, who has been living with her mum and grandmother at the family home in Fair Oak, has told of how she will bury her daughters in their pyjamas.

Their coffins will be in their favourite colours, red with yellow lining for Ellie and pink with purple lining for Isobelle.

Flowers will spell out Princess and Angel on the coffins that will be borne on a horse-drawn carriage.

Speaking of her grief at the loss of her children Kerrie described how she woke up the Monday after their deaths worried that they would be late for school, only for the realisation to hit that they were gone.

Their funeral will take place tomorrow at Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church in Eastleigh.

Kerrie has asked mourners to wear brightly-coloured clothes to celebrate their short lives.

I agree about the photo, unnecessary.
What an amazing example she sets, a very brave woman indeed.

She's probably got more things to worry about. Besides, she has already given her story to a national newspaper, so I doubt she's that worried about the Echo covering it.

Of course there will be guilt there you sicko, no matter what the circumstances in the run up to the event there would be guilt there.
I'm not known for my compassion, but even I can see this is a terrible situation.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing, the man was an extreme screw up, the girl couldn't have seen that coming, and your pathetic mind can only think of half blaming the poor girl.
You pathetic moron.
By the way, the Echo's security word of 'tall-hang' probably reflects their sick mindset on the issue, more angry at missing out on an exclusive as the girl talked to a national instead. Otherwise why even bring up payment issues in earlier coverage. Maybe Hulla Ballo is Ian Murray or the girl who copied and pasted the story from the mirror and claimed the story as her own.
All very sad.

Not brave at all. Just publicity seeking and smacks of a guilty conscience. The relatives of David Cass deserved better than the circus that I watched.

I don't doubt that she would have wound up the father big time, all silly ex's do stuff like that but it is hardly an excuse for killing your babies.

No matter what she did, David Cass's friends and family are crazy if they think they can come on here and justify him killing his kids.

Wow, do those of you who have slagged this poor girl off now feel better? IMO I dont feel that a funeral is the right time to do this. I dont know her, dont know him, or any of the family or circumstances. Of course there is 2 sides to this story. Of course there is guilt. In the majority of relationship breakdowns there is guilt. We are talking about a man being laid to rest here and his ex partner attending the funeral. I think the only 2 people who truly knew what was going on were Kerrie and David. Now David is gone and Kerrie will have to live with this. Try and have some compassion at least.

Rather than pointing the blame at this tragedy at the mum or dad, it would be wise to make sure this sort of thing doesnt happen again. The mother, who may or may not have guilt tripped the guy into killing himself and his children, the father who took his own life and that of his children so he would never be able to be without them....or the tint tots who are the real victims, didnt do anything to anyone, and lost theyre lives because two adults werent responisble enough to bring them into the world into the first place. You should all remember that it could happen to any of us, God forbid, and that this should be a tribute to those who should spend more time with your families and looking after your little ones. RIP kids. RIP to the dad too.

Kerrie Hughes is so brave, holding it together even hours before she buries her children. How can you be so calous a to suggest she's anything other than devastated right now?

If David Cass was a known nutter that was always threatning to kill himself (as the best friend stated in a national newspaper)then why let him have weekend custody, this poor guy was at an all time low. Whilst on the subject of the best friend and again refering to her article, this guy allegedly preyed on young girls why would her own mother allow a 15 year schoolgirl to have a relationship with a guy 13 years older and if he was so bad why introduce him to your best mate!! I do not agree with the action taken by David Cass the only thing I can say is that it takes an extremely desperate person to do what he did and I pray that both he and his little cherubs are now at peace.

The "best friend" is not the friend she claims to be, anything for publicity - trust me. This poor guy? If he had killed himself then yes, the pooor guy but he murdered his children! What part of this are you not getting? Seems Kerrie can't do wrong for doing right in some people's eyes.

There is always a choice..in this case not to murder your 2 children. Killing yourself is one thing, but taking your children with you is an act of selfishness, spite and revenge. No mother deserves to have their children stolen from her, no matter what she may or may not have done.

vodka how very apt a name you have, the trowbridge side of the cass family was not invited to the funeral of David or his father 14 years ago, ask yourself why, apart from falling over themselves to grab what they could, they may be ashamed but not as much as david and his father as well as the rest of the family were ashamed ofthem and what they did.

I do not agree with the action taken by David Cass the only thing I can say is that it takes an extremely desperate person to do what he did and I pray that both he and his little cherubs are now at peace.
its so nice to here someone on his side. i also think what he did was so very wrong. but i belive a know he had no choice. and i also hope that he has found his little girls and that they will live in peace forever! if you know the cass family please give them my heartfelt regards .
There is always a choice..in this case not to murder your 2 children. Killing yourself is one thing, but taking your children with you is an act of selfishness, spite and revenge. No mother deserves to have their children stolen from her, no matter what she may or may not have done.
um..what choice might that have been then, spend the next years battling with the courts to obtain his legal rights? run away with the children to start a new life to then be arrested for kidnapping his own children? what would you have suggested, as I previously have stated I do not agree with the action David took but having been in a position similiar I can appreciate how he must of been feeling.

If she thought that was any chance that David would carry out his reported threats of suicide then why did she not allow access provided she was also there so as to protect her children, ok not ideal but something that could have prevented this tragedy from taking place.

Sorry Norahbatty, but no arguement that you can give can defend such actions. There are many parent sout their fighting for custody rights, but they don't murder their children. There are no excuses, no defence and no sense in what he did!
