Husband of a South African doctor Lauren Dickason accused of killing their three children says he forgives her



The husband of Dr Lauren Dickason, a South African mother and doctor charged with murdering their three children in New Zealand, says he has forgiven her.

A letter by Dr Graham Dickason was read to hundreds of people who attended a candlelight vigil outside the family home in Timaru, New Zealand, on Thursday.

He discovered his three girls’ bodies when he came home from work last week.

“On Thursday, 16 September 2021, my life and Lauren’s was turned upside down when our three precious angels have ripped away from us,” the letter, read out by Reverend Alan Cummins, stated.

“It’s a loss I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”

He asked for everyone’s prayers.

“Please also pray for my lovely Lauren as I honestly believe she is a victim of this tragedy as well. People that know her well will testify to that, I have no doubt. I have already forgiven her and I urge you at your own time to do the same,” he said in the letter.

“It is the key to healing for this loss we have all experienced.”

Lauren, a former Pretoria doctor, is charged with killing twin girls Maya and Karla, 2, and their older sister Liane, 6.
According to Reuters, Dr Lauren Dickason, 40, appeared in the Timaru District Court on Saturday and was referred to the hospital for a mental evaluation.

She is expected back in court on 5 October.

The family recently moved to New Zealand after Graham got a job as an orthopaedic surgeon.
