Timeline of Epsom College ‘double murder suicide’ revealed as cops say George Pattison spoke to cops days before killing | The Sun

POLICE believe a dad killed his wife and seven-year-old daughter in a double murder-suicide last weekend.

But what happened in the months leading up to the tragedy on the grounds of Epsom College, Surrey?


George Pattison reports his wife to the police for allegedly striking him.

He is said to have contacted Surrey Police to say his partner had hit him and she was spoken to by officers.

But he later withdrew the claim as he decided it was trivial, The Times reports.

Tributes pour in as Emma Pattison ‘killed by husband’ cops claim

Emma, who ditched a post-university graduate scheme at Thomas Cook for teaching, detailed her career in education, which began in 2002 at Lutterworth College, South Leicestershire, where she taught French and Spanish.

She went on to have stints at Caterham School and Guildford High School, both in Surrey, before moving to St John's School, also in the county.

Three years later, she became head at Croydon High School where she "learnt so much", then she relocated to Epsom last year to "use that knowledge and skill and apply it to something different".

She moved on site with her daughter and George, who ran a management consultancy firm called Tanglewood 2016, according to Companies House.
