Son Hunted After Family Stabbed To Death

Armed police are hunting for a 21-year-old man suspected of stabbing to death three members of his family in Oxfordshire.
Jed Allen is wanted over the murders of his six-year-old stepsister Derin Jordon, their mother Janet Jordon, 48, and her partner Philip Howard, 44.

Their bodies were discovered in a house in Vicarage Road, Didcot, on Saturday night.
The family had been living at the address for two months.
Officers in riot gear are searching the surrounding area, including parks at Oxford University where Allen was a former groundsman. 
Police have issued an appeal for anyone who has seen Allen to get in touch.
He is described as a white male, 6ft tall, of large build, and has a distinctive spider tattoo on his left hand.
Speaking at a news conference, Detective Superintendent Chris Ward from Thames Valley Police said: "We are able to say the likely cause of each of their deaths is stab wounds.
"In relation to the search for the suspect, we are carrying out a number of searches.
"Some of those searches are with armed officers.
"The searches are ongoing. They are intelligence-led. We are still looking for the suspect and making another appeal ... for anybody who knows where he is.
"If anybody sees him, they are to call the police immediately on the emergency line. Not to approach him."
Det Supt Ward also offered his condolences to the family and said they were in the very earlier stages "of coming to terms with this" and had asked for privacy.
