In his son, Markus Mordiac's post, the young man added he could not finish the controversial book his dad co-wrote, adding he knew he was putting his life on the line.
"When dad finished this book he sent me a copy. I got through the first 2 chapters and then stopped, Tears and a heavy heart, knowing my father was About to dive into something that could kill him. We have always had our different opinions and an opposite take on life. I never understood why he was so angry yet so protective of me whilst growing up. This storie really changed my perspective. I’m glad you had the courage to finally bring this out of the dark. My prayers go out to all the victims, and I hope justice will one day be served to the wrong doers! Love you dad, keep your head held high! You deserve it!" he captioned the post.

"I’m honest not even sho where to actually begin, but today I was woken up to news from my mum Mandy Ann Kuhn, that my step dad of many years has passed away. I literally felt my heart crack and fall apart in my chest as I got off the phone with my family, knowing that I’m in China and I can’t be there to comfort my baby sister who has lost her father," Tamsin Amy started off the emotional post.
She added, "To my brother Markus Mordiac, I’m so sorry that you and Brooklyn have to go through this pain, it’s not fair in the least. To Mark Minnie, you weren’t my real dad, but you loved me deeply, and you took me in as one of your own, for that I’ll be forever grateful. I love you, RIP."
