THREE of the four family members slaughtered in their home yesterday would have heard the sounds of their loved ones being killed.

The two women and two children were stabbed to death one by one and their bodies left in different rooms.
Police had not officially named them last night. But they were thought to be cabbie Neil Crampton’s former partner Elizabeth Sobo, 36, their daughter Abigail, 12, and son Steven, five, and Elizabeth’s mother Omotunde Sobo, who was Nigerian.
The bloodbath was discovered around 9am after a tip-off to cops.
A few hours later a dozen officers were lying in wait near the home of 33-year-old Crampton’s parents when he arrived.
Police used three cars and a van to block him in and surrounded his car before ordering him out and arresting him. A local said: “Around 2.30pm there were officers all over the street. They were obviously waiting for someone and as soon as this maroon car drove up they surrounded it.
“It looked like they were pointing guns at him. He was bent over the bonnet and had his hands behind his back.”
Forensic experts in white protective suits were examining the house in Blaydon, Gateshead, last night. Officers removed the Ford Focus on the back of a lorry.
Crampton’s parents — retired plumber Bill, 70, and Ann, 62 — were not at the property. A neighbour said: “Everyone round here knows Neil as a nice lad who has never been in any trouble.
“The family have lived here for years, Neil grew up in the house. He moved back in for a while after he split with Elizabeth.
“Bill and Ann don’t have any other children and they will obviously be devastated by this.”
The four bodies were found at the £250,000 three-bedroom semi where the victims lived in Kenton, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Neighbour Peter Garvey, 71, said: “They were a nice family. The little girl, in particular, was lovely. She was tall for her age and a happy little thing. She used to ride her bike in the street a lot.
“I didn’t see the little boy as much as his sister but he was a friendly little thing as well. It’s such an awful thing to happen.”
In the same month Robert Tamar, 48, stabbed to death his son Nathan, 15 months, then committed suicide in Winchester, Hants.
And last week Gavin Hall, 33, was jailed for life after smothering his daughter Amelia, three, with chloroform in Irchester, Northants.,,2-2006530138,00.html
