Mother thankful for support during ‘traumatic time’

THE mother of a teenager who stabbed her father to death before taking her own life, has today thanked the public for the support her family has received in such a “traumatic time”.

Margaret Pierides, and her father, Costas, both died from stab wounds inflicted during an horrific incident at their home in Sible Hedingham on Saturday morning. The 16-year-old died after being flown to Colchester General Hospital.

Her father was pronounced dead at the luxury family home.

Provisional post-mortem results yesterday confirmed that the pair both died from stab wounds.

Bernadette Bass, Costas’ partner and Margaret’s mother, said: “We really appreciate all the support that so many of you have given me and my family during this traumatic time.
