Rowan Baxter suicide killer from Brisbane rejected sharing custody of children with Hannah Clarke

Rowan Baxter rejected an offer to share custody of his children, aged three to six, with his estranged wife Hannah Clarke before killing them all in a horrific car fire.

Mrs. Clarke (31) and her children Aaliyah (six), Laianah (four) and Trey (three) burned down the Kia Sportage on Wednesday morning after Baxter (42).

Prior to the suicide murder, Baxter ignored his lawyer’s advice to accept an offer that allowed him to get custody of the three children 165 days a year, it was announced on Saturday.

A source close to Baxter told the ABC that the killer would switch between three days and four days of detention per week if he accepted the deal.

“He got the kids back, but … he wanted 50-50, that was it. It was his way or nothing, “he told the national broadcaster.

“In my opinion, it wasn’t about the children at all, he couldn’t ignore the relationship with Hannah.”

Baxter is said to have abducted his six-year-old daughter on Boxing Day last year, which allowed Mrs. Clarke to get a domestic violence order against him.

In January the DVO was varied and Baxter regained access to his children when he refused to sign the consent form that would give him 165 days of detention per year during mediation, according to the source.

The father instead signed a legally binding parental agreement that gave him the same level of access as Mrs. Clarke – but the agreement was annulled when he allegedly abused his wife in violation of the DVO.

On Wednesday, Baxter hurried into his estranged wife’s car, stabbed her throat and told her to drive, and then set her on fire with their three children when she stopped for help.

Her shattered father Lloyd Clarke has put together the gruesome timeline of events that led to the tragic loss of four lives and Baxter’s suicide.

Despite burns of up to 97 percent of her body, heroic Hannah was able to give the police on site a detailed explanation of what happened.

She took the children to school after 8 hours from her parents’ house in Camp Hill, Brisbane, while her killer was lurking.

A notorious control freak, Baxter has been in a spiral since Hannah left him with the children in November and decided to take his revenge.

“Rowan has probably been lurking somewhere nearby, hiding on the side of the house or in the driveway of the neighbors,” Mr. said. Clarke v Daily Mail Australia.

“His car was found in the street, this was certainly premeditated.”

Hannah took the children in the car and walked to the back seat to put on Trey’s seat belt, because the girls could make their own clothes.

That was the time her killer needed.

“He was very fast, as a former athlete. As she does that, he runs into the passenger seat and holds a knife to her throat and tells her to drive, “Mr. Clarke said.

“She went to the corner here, turned to the left and saw a neighbor washing his car and driving over to get help.”

Michael Zemek was the heroic first reaction to the horror that was about to flood Raven Street and traumatize dozens of residents.

When Hannah stopped next to him and shouted, “He poured gas on me,” Baxter realized his time was up and lit the fire while he was still in the car.

“If he gets stuck in a corner, he has no empathy, so he would have just gone” “ok, that’s it, light it, boom, gone,” Mr. Clarke said.

“In a way, I hope he gave it (the gasoline) to the girls, because that would have been faster.”

As the car went up in flames, Hannah jumped out while her sportswear was on fire and the flaming gasoline melted her skin.

Mr. Zemek helped her to control the flames by falling to the ground and rolling, and then spraying water on her horrific burns with his garden hose.

He suffered burns to his face and hands in the process and is still recovering in the hospital.

Amazingly enough, even with burns on every part of her body, Hannah was able to explain exactly what had happened.

“She still had enough strength and was still conscious enough to give the first responders a detailed description of what had happened,” Mr. Clarke said.

“He bothered her and got into the car. She managed to provide a detailed report on drugs and first responders there, the police, “he told A Current Affair.

“They said almost like a police report. She was so articulated. Right now he did this and he did that.

“She fought to the end to make sure that if he survived, he would be punished with her babies. She was so brave.

“I didn’t know she could have been that detailed. She made sure she received as much information as possible. ”

The shattered father said he was struggling with how much he wanted to know about his daughter’s last moments and that there were more details that the police had not yet shared.

“I want to find out and I don’t want to find out,” he said.

“I don’t know what his agenda was, did he go somewhere to do it somewhere else, did he just do Hannah?”

Witnesses told Daily Mail Australia that even while Hannah was on fire, her thoughts were with her children.

“My children are in the car except my children,” she cried.

But it was too late. The heat was so intense that the children had no hope, and traditions trying to open the doors burned their hands.

“She loved her children, there was nothing she had not done for them. Even at the end she fought to save them, “Hannah’s mother Suzanne said.

Cowardly Baxter, on the other hand, tried to fight neighbors and tried to extinguish the fire in the car, after which he stabbed himself in the chest until he died.

During the A Current Affair interview, Hannah’s devastated mother revealed that she had even talked about writing a will and said, “She only said to me last week:” Mommy should I do a will? “

“What will happen to my babies if he kills me?” Because he goes to jail for murder, who will get my children? “She said,” I want you and Dad to have them or Nat. I don’t want his family to have them ‘.

“I didn’t think he would hurt the children. She was afraid he would kill her. I believed that could be possible. “

The family said the devoted mother would do anything for the young children, and worked on a new life for them.

While they held each other’s hands during the interview, the Clarkes said they were starting to fear for their daughter’s safety when she finally left her abusive husband in November last year.

He had not yet physically abused her before, using financial, sexual, and emotional manipulation instead.

Asked if she was worried about her daughter’s life, her mother said, “Especially when she was getting ready to leave.

“Although he felt that he was still in control of the situation, it was not physically dangerous.

“But we knew there was no way to say” I’m going “and walk out the door.”
