Head of Epsom College ‘s husband, who is understood to have killed his wife and seven-year-old daughter before turning his gun on himself, wrote he was ‘desperate to do something better with his days’ as he set up a doomed wine-importing business, it was revealed last night.
George Pattison, 39, was an accountant with a history of business woes, most recently setting up consultancy firm Tanglewood in 2016, before taking out a £14,000 director’s loan in 2021.
In a presentation pitching a wine-importing company, he described himself as ‘a career accountant desperate to do something better with his days’, The Telegraph reports.
Mr Pattison said he had worked ‘in a variety of industries including corporate finance, investment management and financial consultancy’.
It comes as comments from Emma in an interview published in School Management Plus magazine six days before her death emerged, in which she said she was looking forward to an ‘exciting future’. She was found dead alongside her husband and their daughter Lettie in their home on school grounds.
