Facebook murder rocks 'perfect little family'
A jealous husband is believed to have murdered the mother of their two children and then killed himself after she told the world via Facebook that they were splitting up, London's Daily Mail reports.
The body of Tracey Grinhaff was found in a shed in the back garden of her home in Wombwell, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, while her husband's remains were discovered in nearby woodland.
Investigations revealed Mrs Grinhaff, 42, died from head injuries while her husband, 41-year-old electrical engineer Gary Grinhaff, died from self-inflicted head wounds.
Mrs Grinhaff updated her profile on the popular social networking site about a fortnight ago and told friends she was "currently splitting", from her husband.
"Been together for 16 years but together for 26!!!! God that makes me sound old," she wrote of her relationship with her husband.
The Daily Mail reported that neighbours in the town, where the couple lived with their two daughters aged 14 and four, described them as "the perfect little family".
But others hinted that Mr Grinhaff had recently discovered that his wife was having an affair.
Julie Kendall, 38, a woman who became friends with Mrs Grinhaff at a local mothers and toddlers group four years ago was quoted as saying: "I didn't really know her husband, but I do think it's true that they were splitting up."
She described her friend as "genuine, caring and kind" and said: "There are probably a handful of people that you would meet like Tracey in one lifetime. You couldn't fault her for anything."
Enid Hindley, who lived two doors away from the Grinhaff family since they moved in more than 18 years ago, was quoted as saying: "It's just devastating. Everybody's talking about it. Everybody's in a state of shock.
"It's just one of those things that you would never expect."
Police arrested a neighbour who discovered the bodies on suspicion of murder early in the investigation but later released him without charge.
Investigators have said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
