Murder Suicide: Mother Appeared ‘Bright, Bubbly, Happy’
Erica Bond was well-known within the golfing community.
A mother and son involved in a suspected murder-suicide on the NSW Central Coast have been identified as Erica Bond, 47, and her nine-year-old son, Lachlan.
Their bodies were discovered in their Kilpa Road home in Wyongah just before 2pm on Tuesday, according to police.
"Detectives continue to investigate but no other parties are being sought in relation to this incident," a police spokesman told AAP.
Lachlan was a student at the Tuggerawong Public School, and his mum was understood to be an active member of the local community and was well-known in the golfing community, especially on the Central Coast.
School principal Grant McFarland said "significant additional support" would be available to students over the coming days.
"The staff and I appreciate the tremendous support of our parents and our broader school community at this challenging time," he told parents and carers.
"Our heartfelt thoughts are with our much valued student’s family and friends at this time."
People in the golfing community who knew Bond and her son were shocked at their deaths, with Judy O'Callahan describing her as a "bright, bubbly person".
"You wouldn't expect anyone to do it, but she would be one of the last people you'd think of," she said.
Lachlan's golfing prowess was also well known in the community, and had "every potential there was" said Henry Sun Woo.
"I seen him once on the 8th hole, he was hitting the ball crossing the water through the green.It was about 150 yards he just put it in, the little kid," he said.
A report has been made for the coroner.
