Aaleyn, 6, Matilda, 5, Wyatt, 4 and Zaidok, 2, were killed when their mother's car collided on May 27 with a truck on the Bunya Highway near Kumbia in Queensland – three hours from the family home.

James McLeod called his ex-partner Charmaine McLeod & # 39; a lying, vengeful, evil, annoying person & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I always knew she would do something like that for the children. I let judges know, I told lawyers, I told DOCS (the Department of Child Safety) that I let the police know, & he said The courier post.

& # 39; They've all turned a blind eye. All this could have been prevented if they did something. (I've told them for years). & # 39;

He told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday that his former partner intentionally crashed the vehicle and says he was & # 39; lost & # 39 ;. in the weeks following the tragedy.

Mr. McLeod has yet to receive a full autopsy report, which will determine the cause of his children's deaths, but says that the police bringing the detectives to the case told him what had happened.

& # 39; It's a murder case, & # 39; he said. & # 39; Anyone can put two and two together and see what that means. & # 39;

McLeod says that as the weeks go by, the idea that his children are gone is no easier to process.

& # 39; I am lost, I miss my baby & # 39; s & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; I am angry with the system because I am not protecting them … there is a big hole in my heart where they used to be. & # 39;

In an interview with Nine News on Wednesday night, Mr. McLeod said that the details he struggled with most were the role of his estranged partner in the death of their children.

& # 39; I am absolutely upset about someone they loved that they could do this & # 39 ;, he told the network.

The children were buried earlier this month, separated from their mother.

Although there was still no official sequence of events that led to the crash, a truck driver named Mark, who was behind McLeod & # 39; s car, said she had not been in the process of overtaking him, such as at first it was thought, when she started the path of an oncoming car.

& # 39; I was right behind her and although I will not discuss anything I saw with anyone other than the investigator in charge, I am not letting this family think that she has overtaken me dangerously. She didn't do it. Fact, & # 39; the driver wrote on social media.

Mark said McLeod had caught up with him some distance back, without incident. although he would not go into detail about what he subsequently saw.

& # 39; It's just not right for the families going through hell to spend the rest of their lives with the idea that those children died because their mother seemed dangerous, & he said.

& # 39; I can't talk about the impact that lies ahead, but I can say she caught up with me very safely.

& # 39; What happened to me a few dozen meters later is up to the experts to determine. & # 39;

The grieving father-of-four said the series of events described by the driver & # 39; nicely on point & # 39; used to be.

Hundreds of mourners, including young friends of the deceased children, attended a moving funeral service for the children in the Urraween crematorium on the Fraser coast earlier this month.

The father of the children spent time alone with the crates before the service began, and outside the crematorium, mourners blew bells and were invited to make thumbprints on a cloth to form leaves on a tree.
