PostSubject: Foster unlawfully killed family   Sat Apr 04, 2009 1:37 am

Ruined millionaire Christopher Foster unlawfully killed his wife
Jill and teenage daughter Kirstie before committing suicide, a coroner
has ruled.

The inquest at Shrewsbury
Magistrates' Court was told that the 50-year-old businessman had killed
49-year-old Jill and 15-year-old Kirstie "almost certainly" as they
slept in their beds.

Coroner for mid and north
Shropshire, John Ellery, said: "Mrs Jill Foster and her daughter Miss
Kirstie Foster were both shot in the head.

"They were shot in their respective bedrooms almost certainly whilst asleep.

"They both had everything to live for and Kirstie had her teenage and adult life ahead of her."

said Mr Foster had "quickly and methodically", killed his family and
set their £1.2 million mansion in Maesbrook, Shropshire, on fire in
August last year.

Speaking after the verdict Mr
Foster's brother, Andrew Foster, said: "What has shocked us as a family
over the last six months is the failure of different branches of the
public services to work together, even when the objectives is as
essential as the prevention of life-threatening violence.

has become apparent that Christopher had been mentally ill for some
time and had discussed with his GP and other people that he intended to
take his own life.

"We are not apportioning
blame or condoning Christopher's actions during the morning of August
26 last year, but we wish to highlight that preventative measures such
as improved communication between GPs and police or firearms officers
in the future could help stop a similar tragedy happening to another

Mr Foster said a webpage has been set
up to allow well-wishers to make donations to the Riding for the
Disabled Association in Kirstie's memory.

He added: "Kirstie's memory will not be lost as we intend to continue our work with the Riding for Disabled Association."

Foster said the family also intended to present a trophy in Kirstie's
name at the association's riding championships due to be held in July.

a statement issued by police, Jill Foster's brother, Roger Doley, who
chose not to attend the inquest, said he wanted to thank all those
involved in the investigation.

Speaking outside
the magistrates' court, Superintendent Jon Groves, who led the
investigation for West Mercia Constabulary, said he had never dealt
with such a "challenging and unusual" investigation and said the case
was one of the most complex and high profile the force had ever dealt

He said: "This was a very sad and tragic
case and my thoughts and those of the officers and staff from West
Mercia Constabulary are with the Foster family's relatives and friends
at this time.

"Now the inquest has concluded
and we have the verdicts, I hope it offers some sort of closure to the
Foster's loved ones and they can begin to move forward and rebuild
their lives.

"I would like to thank them for their support throughout the investigation."
