The mother of Rebecca Sessacar who was killed after being stabbed 58 times by her husband has said her daughter’s death could have been prevented.No doubt it could. But mainly by Rebecca.
Sandra Ward, Mrs Sessacar’s mum, said the personal trainer should not have been allowed back to live with Rebecca having been arrested just days before the fatal attack for assaulting his wife.Did she have no say in this, then?
Ms Ward also criticised the NHS for knowing Mr Sessacar had mental health issues having been previously sectioned but allowing him to go home from hospital.Yes, well, why not turn your ire on the policy that allows this?
"I told Rebecca to have him put into hospital as she couldn’t manage looking after him. He was also a risk to himself and to Rebecca. I told her that she risked getting hurt but I never considered that he would go so far as to kill her.
"Rebecca should have been provided with more help and support."Rebecca should have heeded the warnings. She didn't. That's not the fault of the authorities.
