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.”
