A welfare check in the 1500 block of Pine Bluff Drive revealed how Texas brothers planned to kill their whole family.

In the US city of Allen, Texas, a family was found murdered in their own house – a married couple, their three adult children, and a grandmother. 

This was confirmed to KTVT on Monday, April 5, citing the city’s law enforcement agencies.

According to the preliminary version of the police, two brothers shot and killed the rest of the family, and then committed suicide. 

“When I heard the news I couldn’t breathe for 20 to 30 minutes. How could it happen in a community like us? We’re so close and we visit each other and talk to each other, we have dinner and stuff, but inside the house… his children were unhappy for some reason and one thing led to another,” lamented family friend Shawn Ahsan.

“We are heartbroken. I don’t know what else to say… ”

It is indicated that one of the guys left a suicide note. In it he writes “Hey everyone. I killed myself and my family.” He goes on to talk about how he has battled depression since 9th grade.

“If we can’t fix everything in a year we’ll kill ourselves and our family.”

“The plan was simple. We get two guns. I take one and shoot my sister and grandma, while my brother kills our parents with the other. Then we take ourselves out.”

No other details apart from his depression are mentioned as to why Farhan Towhid carried out such plan.

“If I killed just myself, they would be miserable,” he wrote. “I love my family. I genuinely do. And that’s exactly why I decided to kill them.”

As the TV channel informed, the killed were natives of Bangladesh. Presumably, their photos were published on the Web.

Police officials are asking for anyone who may have additional information about the incident to please call Investigator Tim Dowd at tdowd@cityofallen.org or by phone at 214.509.4252.

“And I don’t think he was talking about, look at me, Look at me. I think he was talking about, I need to be heard. I need somebody to understand what this is like, so that somebody else can get help from it,” Leigh Richardson, clinical director of the Brain Performance Center, said.

“I think we all need to recognize that depression is very common, and it occurs at very early ages. And if you have a child or a sibling, or a partner, or just a friend that you think may be experiencing depression, reach out,” Richardson added.

Towhid’s suicide note was posted for a time on Google Docs but it was removed from Google stating, “We’re sorry. You can’t access this item because it is in violation of our Terms of Service.”

The University of Texas at Austin released a statement on the deaths of Farhan and Tanvir Towhid, who were both former students at the college.

“Today we received the extremely sad news about the deaths of two former students, Farhan Towhid and his brother Tanvir Towhid, and their family. The news is devastating to our university. We express our deepest sympathies to their extended family and friends.”
