Police have stated that the three victims, one of whom was an infant, were fatally stabbed at a residence in Bristol.

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

A woman, 42, who was arrested for their suspected murder, is currently in the hospital.

“The tragic passing of these young children, who had their whole futures ahead of them, is incredibly saddening. Our condolences go out to their family and all those impacted by this tragic event. Our specialized liaison officers will continue to offer assistance and support to their loved ones.”

In the last few days, the children underwent forensic postmortem examinations. It has been determined that the cause of death for each child was knife wounds.

A 42-year-old woman has been taken into custody under suspicion of their murder and is currently receiving medical treatment at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. The legally permitted duration for keeping a person in custody does not begin until they have been brought to a police station, and therefore does not include any time spent in the hospital.

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

Authorities responded to a residence in the Sea Mills neighborhood of Bristol during the early morning hours of Sunday following a report from a citizen. They arrived at 12:40am and discovered three children who could not be rescued.

The street is located in a peaceful area approximately four miles northwest of the center of Bristol. A community hall was established to provide a gathering space for residents to come together and support each other.

A memorial vigil was conducted on Friday to honor the children.

The Avon and Somerset police voluntarily reported themselves to the Independent Office for Police Conduct regarding a previous interaction, but the organization determined that no further investigation was necessary.

A representative from the IOPC stated that, in response to the unfortunate incidents that occurred in the Sea Mills neighborhood of Bristol last weekend, they were referred by the Avon and Somerset police on Tuesday due to previous interactions with the individuals involved over the course of time, with the most recent being earlier this month.

After carefully examining all the provided information, we have concluded that there is no need for an investigation and have therefore returned the referral to Avon and Somerset.

“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 thoughts and sympathies to those impacted by this tragic occurrence.
