WA father anguished by loss of 4 children

Relatives of the seven family members killed in Friday's Margaret River mass shooting have released a statement on the tragedy, saying they're "still trying to understand how this could happen". "I don't want anyone to feel angry".

"If it wasn't for Peter, I wouldn't have Katrina, I wouldn't have her kids".

Aaron Cockman, the estranged husband of victim Katrina Miles, said he was "filled with tremendous sadness" over the loss of his kids - Taye, 13, Rylan, 11, Arye, 10, and Kadyn Cockman, 8.

The last of the children's bodies have now been removed from the crime scene and funeral plans are underway as the children of Margaret River return to school today.
