Murder probe as family found dead at home
A DAD is believed to have murdered his wife and two teenage daughters before killing himself.
The bodies of Jitendra Lad, 49, his wife, Daksha, 44, and daughters, Trisha, 19, and Nisha, 17, were found at their home in Clayton, Bradford, on Monday night.
Police launched a murder investigation but said they are not looking for anyone else in relation the deaths.
They said early indications suggest the bodies may have been in the house “for some time”.
Officers were called to the property at 8.31pm on Monday night after they were contacted by a neighbour who was concerned they had not seen the family recently.
Det Superintendent Simon Atkinson said: “This is clearly a significant incident and our investigation will be thorough as we piece together the events that have led to the deaths of a local family.
“We are undertaking forensic inquiries to establish how these people have died.
“We are keeping an open mind but from what we know at the moment we are not looking for anybody else.”
