Nitschke says sui­cides planned

The Observer - - NATION NEWS -

A EU­THANA­SIA ad­vo­cacy group has con­firmed a Gold Coast mother and her two daugh­ters spent months plan­ning their deaths. The bod­ies of Mar­garet, Heather and Wynette Cum­mins were found in one of their Ephraim Is­land (pic­tured) homes on Tues­day. Eu­thana­sia ad­vo­cate Dr Philip Nitschke said the women joined his Exit In­ter­na­tional group six months ago. “They were not ter­mi­nally ill peo­ple, but on the other hand they were not in the best of health ei­ther,” he said. The women bought deadly gas from Dr Nitschke’s “home brew­ing” com­pany.
