Steven Robertson, 40, unleashed the horror knife attacks on Emma Robertson Coupland, 39, and Nicole Anderson, 24, last night before he died in a car crash 12 miles away.
The first frenzied attack unfolded outside Crosshouse Hospital near Kilmarnock in Scotland about 7.45pm yesterday, leaving Emma fatally wounded.
Then around 20 minutes later, Robertson stabbed 24-year-old Nicole outside her work on Portland Street in the centre of the Ayrshire town.
She was rushed to hospital but tragically died.
As police swarmed to the horrific attacks, Robertson was found dead around 8.30pm after a crash near the A76.
Tributes have now flowed in for Emma and Nicole after the horrific attacks – with their family saying they were left “totally broken”.
Emma’s heartbroken sister said wrote on social media: “I am totally broken, my God man this cni be happening we argued like f*** all the time but ur ma only sister ma first niece please tell me am dreaming no way man [sic]”.
“Hoping I could wake up and this all be a dream can’t take it in I’m completely broken.”
Nicole’s fiancée also took to social media to pay an emotional tribute as she paid tribute to her “beautiful wee angel”.
Vowing to love her forever, she said: “Hoping I could wake up and this all be a dream can’t take it in I’m completely broken.”
Floral tributes have since been left outside of the hospital as the family grapples with the devastating news.
Today, forensics cops were on the scene, near Auchinleck, probing the crash site.
A number of officers in white suits surrounded the car, which was in the grass verge at the side of the road.
A tarpaulin covered the car to shroud it from view before a temporary fencing was put in place across the minor road.
Emergency services had rushed to the scene last night as the first attack unfolded.
Cops locked down Crosshouse and cordoned off a section of the town near the Portland Street viaduct.
Officers were seen running on foot through the town centre as they responded to the serious incidents.
An onlooker described a “very tense atmosphere” as cops locked down an area around the viaduct.
Chief Superintendent Faroque Hussain said a number of locations had been cordoned off as police investigated the tragedy.
He confirmed officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incidents.
He added: “Understandably, people will be shocked by what has happened.
We are still in the process of establishing the full circumstances, however, I would like to reassure people that there is no wider threat to the community.
