MIDDELBURG – The Middelburg police confirmed on Monday morning that the 38-year-old man found dead with his two children on Sunday evening had in fact killed the two, aged 2 and 5. The father then took his own life. The tragedy occurred in a home on the Noordpoortstraat in Middelburg.

Mayor Koos Schouwenaar was at the 5-year-old boy's school on Monday morning, headmaster of primary school Wilgenhof Bram de Muynck reported. 

Employees of the victim support bureau were also on hand at the school. De Muynck said the children were coping with the news reasonably well at the beginning of the day.

"They are talking in groups about their memories of the boy. We will also send a letter home to all parents of children at school to inform them of the situation. The parents of the boy's classmates were already informed by telephone."
