Lin and her two daughters Megan and Josie were bound, blindfolded, and bludgeoned with a claw hammer.

For the first time, the monster, who is serving life in prison for the murder of Millie Dowler, has revealed how he murdered Russells.
He even admits to taking a hair scrunchie as a macabre souvenir and killing the family dog after it bit him.
“I was wearing shiny yellow marigold cleaning gloves and holding a hammer in my right hand,” according to the statement.
“I kept a screwdriver, a lock knife, a hammer, and a very long black bootlace in my car.” “My initial intention was to simply attack Lin, but I instantly changed my mind due to the screams and was concerned she would fight back because the children were with her.”
However, when I approached Lin, gripping her right arm tightly, she requested that I not harm her children.” She was composed. He states that if only she had screamed, he would have struck her and fled without causing any harm to the children.
But the situation had spiraled out of control, and the more she cooperated, the more confident he became. The statement goes on to describe how he murdered Lin and Megan before leaving Josie for dead with horrific injuries.
