This post deals with the tragic deaths of a family including children, as well as an apparent suicide, and may be distressing for readers.
Kim Hunt’s sister, Jenny Geppert, has told The Daily Telegraph she does not blame Geoff for murdering his family.
“All I feel is sadness and the terrible loss of a most amazing family,” she said.
“I still love Geoff as much as I ever have and I always will.”
Geppert does not believe the murder was premeditated, saying it was a consequence of her sister’s brain injury and the toll it took on the Hunt family.
“A brain injury robs a person of empathy and love. Unless you live with someone who’s gone through this you can’t understand – it dulls their emotions,” Mrs Geppert said.
“I can only imagine that Geoff decided it was all too hard, that there was just too much to deal with.”
