'Loving' father murders two young sons in frenzied knife attack before beating wife to death then killing himself
Murder-suicide has shocked Atlanta’s Sikh community
A "loving" father killed his wife and two young sons before taking his own life in a murder-suicide that has shocked a US Sikh community.
Shindiver Grover is believed to have murdered his sons, Sartaj aged 12 and Gurtej aged five, in a frenzied knife attack that reportedly left them with stab, incise and chop wounds.
His 47-year-old wife Damanjit, also known as Daisy, was found beaten to death with a blunt instrument. Shortly afterwards, Shindiver Grover took his own life by hanging.
Police in Atlanta, Georgia discovered the four bodies after a friend of Daisy’s grew concerned when she failed to turn up for work.
At around 11:30am yesterday, officers entered the family’s large first-floor flat to discover the grisly scene.
Fulton County medical examiner’s office reportedly recorded Shindiver Grover’s death as suicide by hanging, and ruled the three other deaths as homicide.
A shocked neighbour speaking to the Atlanta Journal Constitution described Shindiver and Daisy Grover as a “very loving couple”.
Describing the scene, Johns Creek Police Chief Ed Densmore said: “It's pretty bad as you can imagine…Any time you deal with something this bad involving kids, it's heart-wrenching.”
