Mystery Of The Missing Millionaire - 3 BODIES FOUND!!!!

Post  Susan on Wed 27 Aug - 19:33

6:45pm UK, Wednesday August 27, 2008

A millionaire and his family are missing after their country estate was burned down in a suspected arson attack.

Police have launched a major investigation following the blaze in Maesbrook, near Oswestry, Shropshire, which broke out shortly before 5am on Tuesday.

It is not known if Jillian and Christopher Foster and their teenage daughter Kirsty were in Osbaston House at the time of the fire, but all three reman unaccounted for.

The country house, which has a stable block and kennels, is reportedly worth £1.2m.

Sky News correspondent Darren Little said the fire was so severe that police have been unable to enter the property.

He said a gate to the property was blocked by a horsebox.

The family's horses have also been found dead in outbuildings away from where the main blaze was - and the family's dogs are missing.

A full search will take place when the scene is deemed safe, Little said.

"It is very strange that the police would say this is arson at such an early stage.

"Normally they would say they are investigating it."

Little added: "It has been reported that the gate to the very large property was blocked by a horse box, and the fear is that the family were inside - and what has happened to them," said Little.

CCTV footage has been recovered from the property and around 80 officers and staff are working on the investigation, named Operation Feedback.

Det Supt Jon Groves, from West Mercia Constabulary's Major Incident Unit, said: "There was a CCTV system at the property, which has been recovered by officers and will be examined over the coming days.

"The house, a garage and stable block and another outbuilding were severely damaged.

"Two horses in the stable and another in the outbuilding have been found dead. Two dogs, which we believe were in a kennel block, are missing.

"A search will be carried out of the property to establish if anybody was inside as soon as the building is deemed to be safe.

"Forensic investigators have been at the scene and house-to-house inquiries carried out."

According to reports, Mr Foster is a multi-millionaire businessman who made his fortune developing insulation technology for oil rigs.

You would have thought so Amber. Tonights news said that the village people were talking of it
as arson and murder. Apparently the house was set back on its own and the family kept themselves to themselves.

I just dont know about this....something doesnt seem right....

I dont expect that villagers would know and its more than likely they would gossip without knowing facts...but friends...family etc would know something...

My house is set back too and i hardly know my neighbours but I work with my sister and 9 other ppl in my company and i have family who know who exactly where i am or if i am going away....

You would have thought the family would know of their whereabouts and they are business people. You would have thought the police would have sorted out with the family first. Still there maynot be one.

Amber, we seem to spend our lives saying somethings not adding up.

How terrible, I do hope that the family weren't there.
It's really odd but I had a dream last night about a big house on fire and this girl just clung to the wall and died. It was odd cos I've never dreamt about a fire before.....

There was a brief report on Sky this morning about some kind of business with a land deal in Cyprus but nothing more has been mentioned...There have been a few murders surrounding land deals in Cyprus, I remember when I lived in Paphos a few 'rumours' regarding the russians and burning down houses.....

I heard on Global radio (Marbella English radio station) on my way home that they still couldnt get into the house as it was too hot...so they didnt know if the family were inside!

I was thinking "why dont you cool it down with a water hose" ???

My guess is the dad went nuts and shot them all. I don't think an intruder would risk getting caught for the sake of killing ginea pigs etc...Also the person who did it must have known the whereabouts of all the anilmals. As he was a hunter he would've had a gun. A bloke near me (policeman) shot all his kids, 4 of them, youngest 2 yrs old. He then shot his wife in the 'you know what' and then killed himself. The house looks like 'Amityville' We call it spooky house! He did this because his wife was having an affair. I've heard a few stories about men killing their families because of debt worries.

Could be. He had financial problems and his company went into liquidation last year.

Breaking News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12:24pm UK, Saturday August 30, 2008

Two human bodies have been discovered in the burnt out remains of a millionaire's mansion near Oswestry that was gutted in a major arson attack.

The home of businessman Christopher Foster, his wife Jill and their 15-year-old daughter Kirstie was reduced to blackened rubble after a fire was started deliberately in at least three areas of the Shropshire estate.

The three family members have not been seen since Tuesday's blaze and it is feared they may have died inside the property.

West Mercia Constabulary said it was not possible to give an indication of the age or sex of the bodies found at this stage.

Forsensic teams were finally able to move into the main section of the destroyed house yesterday afternoon after securing loose debris.

Superintendent Gary Higgins said: "We can confirm that two bodies were recovered last night from the main part of Osbaston House, Maesbrook.

"The remains will be examined by a Home Office pathologist and post mortems are due to be carried out later today to establish the cause of death."

Supt Higgins added that "every possible scenario" behind the fire was being considered while investigators followed up all lines of inquiry.

It could take several weeks for the teams to comb the remains of the mansion, he said.

Police also intend to look at the internet trail left by Kirstie Foster, following reports that she had been chatting with friends online in the hours before the arson attack.

The Fosters were last seen at a friend's barbecue on Monday before returning to their home later that evening.

A man who knew Mr Foster said he feared his former business associate may have "just flipped".

Terence Baines, the former director of Mr Foster's company Ulva Ltd, said: "It's anyone's guess, but it seems that the people he owed money to are big companies and I can't see them behind something like this."

Detectives have refused to comment on reports that bullet cartridges and pools of blood were found in the courtyard.

They havent found a third body yet so its looking like the millionaire who is not a millionaire cause hes skint must be the one who set his wife and kid alight. As the horsebox was put in the way of escape no kid would think of doing that so it had to be the father.
