Mother of three boys whose husband murdered them all by driving his car into a dam on Father’s Day suddenly dies

A Victorian mother whose three children perished at the hands of their father in a case that shocked Australia has suddenly died after a ‘medical episode’.

Cindy Gambino, 50, passed away despite the best efforts of her husband and medics who tried to revive her on Tuesday. 

On Father’s Day 2005, Ms Gambino’s ex-husband Robert Farquharson drove a car into a dam with their three boys Jai, Tyler and Bailey inside. He left them to die.

Ms Gambino’s family issued a statement dubbing Gambino as a ‘warrior of justice’ since losing her three boys and sharing their ‘sincere thanks’ to all who supported her. 

Ms Gambino attracted sympathy across the nation after Farquharson was convicted of the horrific triple murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole some two years after the crime.

Farquharson lost two subsequent appeals. 

Meanwhile, after the tragedy Ms Gambino married her ‘devoted’ husband, Stephen Moules, who she had more children with. 

‘Through unfathomable tragedy and suffering came new hope, with Cindy and Stephen going on to have two sons, Hezekiah and Isaiah,’ the family’s statement read. 

Her death, which was completely unexpected, has brought ‘deep sadness’ to the ‘shattered’ family.

How the triple murder unfolded 

On September 4, 2005, the 37-year-old Robert Farquharson had been on a Father’s Day outing with his three sons, Jai, 10, Tyler, 7 and Bailey, 2

He was returning his boys to his estranged wife, Cindy Gambino, when he veered his car off the Princes Highway and into a dam near Winchelsea, 110km south-west of Melbourne

Their car went over the gravel median, crossed the oncoming lanes, crashed through a fence, skirted a row of trees before plunging into the dam.

 

The 12-person jury found the Victorian man swam to safety while leaving the boys – Jai, 10, Tyler, 7 and Bailey, 2 – to drown in the dam at Winchelsea, south-west of Melbourne, on Father’s Day, 2005.
