The Sikh Temple in Wisconsin isn't the scene of this crime involving murder and suicide. This time is was Atlanta's Johns Creek where four bodies were found, and two of them children.
The child victims, Gurtej Singh Grover, 5, and Sartaj Singh Grover, 12, died due to sharp force wounds to their necks according to Fulton County Medical Examiner investigators.
The Marietta Daily Journal reports that the children's mother, Damanjit Kaur Grover, 47, died of blunt force trauma to the head, as happened in the Saria Sierra case in Istanbul recently. Damanjit's absence from work on Monday prompted a co-worker to ask police to conduct a wellness check on the missing woman, leading to the finding of the bodies in the home.
The fourth dead body found belonged to Shivinder Singh Grover, 52, the father and husband of the victims, who it is alleged killed all of them before hanging himself.
A motive in the case is not known at this time, but fellow Sikh worshipers familiar with the family report a group that appeared to be balanced, with Shivinder reportedly a very intelligent person who worked as an executive in a technology firm. His wife, Damanjit, had previously worked for Emory Healthcare.
Parvinder Singh, a member of Gurudwara Sahib in Roswell, gave background on the family, stating that they moved from Michigan to Atlanta and that the family was routinely seen on Friday and Sundays, with the exception of this past weekend, just days before the deaths occurred.
