According to authorities, three minors were discovered deceased at a residence in Bristol due to wounds caused by a knife.

Police have announced that three children, one of whom was a baby, were killed by knife wounds at a residence in Bristol.

The Avon and Somerset police confirmed the identities of the three siblings as Mohammed Bash (9 months old), Joury Bash (3 years old), and Fares Bash (7 years old).

A woman, 42, who was arrested on suspicion of murdering them, is still in the hospital.

Inspector Vicks Hayward-Melen stated, “It is truly devastating to lose young children who had so much potential ahead of them. Our condolences go out to their family and all those impacted by this tragic event. Our designated liaison officers will continue to offer assistance and support to their loved ones.”

In the recent days, the children’s bodies underwent forensic postmortem examinations. It has been determined that the cause of death for each child was due to knife wounds.

A 42-year-old woman, who was apprehended under suspicion of committing their murder, is currently hospitalized for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The duration of custody permitted by law does not commence until the individual is brought to a police station, therefore any time spent in the hospital will not be counted.

She stated that the inquiry into determining the circumstances that preceded the fatalities was ongoing.

The police responded to a call from a member of the public and went to a residence in the Sea Mills neighborhood of Bristol early on Sunday. They arrived at 12:40am and discovered three children who could not be rescued.

The road is located in a peaceful area approximately 4 miles northwest of the center of Bristol. A community center was established to provide locals with a gathering place to support and connect with one another.

On Friday, a vigil was conducted to honor and remember the children.

The Avon and Somerset police reported themselves to the Independent Office for Police Conduct regarding previous interactions, but the organization concluded that an investigation was unnecessary.

According to a spokesperson from the IOPC, they were alerted by Avon and Somerset police on Tuesday about the recent events in the Sea Mills area of Bristol. This was due to previous interactions between the police and those involved, with the most recent one occurring earlier this month.

After a thorough evaluation of all the provided data, we have decided to return the referral to Avon and Somerset without any need for further investigation.

“This is because the police do not appear to have been the primary agency involved with the family and there was no police contact in the 10 days prior to the deaths. We have asked the force to re-refer the matter should any further information come to light during any subsequent multi agency reviews.

“We extend our condolences and support to all those impacted by this tragic event.”
