PBC News: Six people from the same family have been found dead at a suburban Texas home in an apparent murder-suicide. Police officers from the town of Allen in Dallas said investigators believe brothers Tanvir Towhid, 21, and Farhan Towhid, 19, were behind the killings.
Sgt Jon Felty from the Allen Police Department said one of the brothers had written a lengthy post on social media in which he said he and his brother had a plan to kill their parents, sister and grandmother before killing themselves, reports Sky News.
He also wrote all of his decisions were based on “weighing pros and cons”, including the one to kill his family.
The bodies were found early on Monday by officers performing a welfare check.
Sgt Felty said: “It appears the two brothers had entered into an agreement.”
The victims were identified as Altafun Nessa, 77; Iren Islam, 56; Towhidul Islam, 54; and Farbin Towhid, 19 – Farhan’s twin sister.
