It is not good to always swallow another man's culture, hook, line and sinker? Imagine an Indian just committed the most heinous of all crimes, murder and of of his entire family including in-laws? If this is not selfishness on the part of the Indian lunatic who dispatched his family members to the world beyond, nothing else so qualifies! If this killer of family was tired of living, why did he not just jump off the bridge, instead of taking other people alongside; after-all the Golden Gate Bridge is just thirty minutes drive away from his home in Santa Clara? Anyway, the whole world is merely adumbrating on an after the fact situation where it is now too late to save the victims? The murder-suicide in an upscale neighborhood of San Francisco area of Silicon Valley, left three children and three adults dead; with one deathly-injured victim, wife of the killer still clinging to life at an area hospital. The victims died from multiple gunshot wounds, fired from two handguns which were recovered at the scene. Picture above left shows the deranged family-killer with his killed son!
Officers discovered in the home's kitchen and dining room area, the bodies of a 10-year-old boy, a 4-year-old girl, a man in his 30s and a woman in her early 20s scattered inside the three-story town house in Rivermark, Santa Clara, a seven-year-old planned community with a shopping center, playgrounds and a mix of town houses, condominiums and Spanish-style houses that go for upwards of $1 million — all of them shot dead. The suspected gunman, a man in his 40s, was found on the top floor, dead from a self-inflicted wound. (The killer is seen in this picture above right with his killed wife, son and child). A toddler was still alive when paramedics arrived but died overnight at a hospital. Police were called to their town home at 4350 Headen Way around 8:30 p.m. Sunday March 2009 after a woman stumbled on a side-walk, bleeding from the home and asked a neighbour to call for help, saying her husband had shot her and that other victims were inside. The woman was later identified as Abha Deverajan, 34, wife of the alleged gunman, 42-year-old Devan Kalathat, aka Raghavan Devarajan. Among the victims were the couple's 11-year-old son, Akhil Devarajan and 4-year-old daughter Negha Devarajan; his brother-in-law and his wife's brother, Ashok Appu Poothemkandi, 35 and his sister-in-law and Poothemkandi's wife, 25-year-old Suchitra Sivaraman both couple were visiting from their homeland India; as well as the couple's 11-month-old daughter Ahana Ashok, who later died from her injuries at the hospital.
His weapon of choice were two .45-caliber semi-automatic pistols which he bought as recently as in February and about two weeks to the murders, respectively. Icheoku says, it appears that this lunatic planned and had time to meditate about his blood-letting? The victims were all members of the Malayalee tribe of India Angur Pradesh and their family lives at Ayyankollai in Nilgiris district, 550 km southwest of Tamil Nadu capital Chennai. Icheoku says people should not allow material things to enslave them, and what you cannot afford to loose, there is no reason acquiring it? Like many suicide-murderers, Mr Raghavan Devarajan walked himself into a rabbit hole of a fantasy life-style which he found himself inextricably trapped in; and being so far removed away from the reality, like a coward he chose to end it when the going went sour? Our only regret is that this madman took others' lives instead of just going out the way he came in - alone! May the families of the victims find solace in the certainty of death and they have gone to a better place.
