Double-murder suicide section[edit]

Does anyone else feel that most of the the Tragedy section is misplaced and in poor taste to be covered in so much detail in this article and that this information and any further information added about this subject should really be in another article should anyone need to read more about it? ~~ Peteb16 (talk) 20:16, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

The event is not notable by itself (WP:NOTNEWS). It should be mentioned briefly, i.e. with all non-essential information cut out. GregorB (talk) 14:53, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
There is indeed far too much weight given to the incident in the article as it stands. The usual remedy is simply to expand the article to redress the balance, by talking about the village's entire history. However, even then I still think it would be inappropriate: the section concerns an incident which occurred in Maesbrook but has little bearing on the place beyond that fact and the obvious stuff like the shock it will have caused etc. This was a private rather than public event like e.g. the Hungerford shooting, so should be spun off into its own article with a link from here if it is thought worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, which I suspect it probably isn't.

So a double murder suicide is not a event notable for a quiet village in Shropshire..!!? What is? The village fete? The old church? Or are you comfortable with familial homicides? Jeez you make me nervous —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.140.220.88 (talk) 14:03, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
It is not clear in this article the relation between Osbaston and Maesbrook, as I have just discovered a stub article on Osbaston, Oswestry, which is surely where the account better belongs.Cloptonson (talk) 16:04, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
