Craig, who did not provide his surname, has today issued the following statement through Victoria Police:

“I’d like to thank the community for their love and support at this difficult time following the loss of my partner Koby and my beautiful children Chloe and Harrison,” he said.

“I have no words to describe how we’re all feeling. This tragedy will take some time to process and we ask for some privacy at this time.”

After the incident on Friday, Detective Senior Sergeant Clanchy said he was at a “loss for words” over the tragedy.

“It would have been a very tragic event for people to have witnessed,” he said.

“When it involves a mother and her two children – this is tragic. It’s hard to find words to describe what’s happened here today.”

Police are still investigating the cause of the incident.
