SCR highlights failure to recognise sexual exploitation and domestic abuse

A serious case review (SCR) of the triple homicide of a grandmother, her daughter and granddaughter by the baby’s father has found social workers did not appreciate it was a case of sexual exploitation and domestic abuse.

The review concluded the victims could have been better protected if the background of 26-year-old Carl Mills was known.

Kim Buckley, Kayleigh, 17, and her six-month-old daughter Kimberley were all killed in a fire started by the baby’s father after he subjected them to a catalogue of abuse, including threats of violence and breaking into their home.
