    Police identify 6 people dead in Texas murder-suicide pact

    Teen brothers seem to be the suspects.
    Grandmother was visiting from Bangladesh.
    She was one of the victims along with mother, father, and sister.

    Too bad they didn't consult their family about their 'pact' before wiping them out.

    There is real evil amongst us. It's not just 'mental illness'. Just my opinion...

    point out
    they wanted to be heard ....they thought this crime will them get some recognition ..this is how the media and social media feed the mentally ill
    it was so easy for them to get weapons....its a piece of cake so why not

    My heart goes out to the surviving relatives.
    Perhaps the notes left behind in these cases should not be released to the public?
    Don't print their photos big and in color, don't give them the attention they wanted, focus on the victims.

    I think we shall never know the underlying story. Two brothers, parents, obviously, loving and proud of their grades. Two boys making the decision to kill themselves, the parents, and the sister. It is a little bit surprising that they did not give the sister a chance to live.

    Many different scenarios come to mind. But, RIP.

    In situations like this, cultural issues need to be taken into account.

    Well if the New York Post is to be believed Farhan on his Instagram page blamed all day TV watching. Especially "The Office".

    Imagine coming from Bangladesh to a supposed "better life", and your family is wiped out by the children.

    Especially sad for grandmom.
