Dallas (Associated Press)-Earlier on Monday, police found six people were shot dead in a house in the suburbs of Dallas after the police said the two brothers had signed an agreement that killed four family members and themselves.
The police sergeant said that after receiving a call from a brother’s friend, Allen’s officer went to his home for a welfare check at around 1 am. Jon Felty.
Ferti said: “It seems that the two brothers have reached an agreement and they are about to commit suicide.”
Ferti said that one of the two brothers wrote a lengthy article on social media in which he said he and his brother had a plan to kill their family members and then kill themselves. He also wrote that all his decisions are based on weighing the pros and cons, including the decision to kill his family.
The police found that six family members died in the house. Ferti said that the deceased included two brothers, a sister, their parents, and a grandmother. Fetti said that the age of the deceased ranges from 19 to the mid-1970s. He said the killing was likely to have occurred over the weekend.
Ferti said they have not yet released the names of the victims. He said that the death is being investigated and suicide is the murder, but he still cannot say who shot the other.
The brother who wrote the social media post said in it that he was cutting his frequency recently, and his recent treatment for depression (including counseling and medication) did not seem to help him as much as before, Ferti said .
Felty said that in the post, he also spent a lot of time writing that he was disappointed with the ending of the TV series “The Office.” “He thinks things should end in a different way, and he feels frustrated…”
Ferti said the brother who wrote the social media post also said that he thought his brother was too easy to get a gun.
Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox (James Alan Fox) said that few siblings are the perpetrators of mass killings.
He said: “In this case, mass killings are usually the perpetrators.”
He said that the Associated Press/USA Today/Northeastern University’s mass killings database recorded 452 mass killings (four or more people killed) from 2006 to Sunday. He said that nearly half of them (217 people) were massacres and some people killed their families.
He said that of the 217 family massacres, 207 people involved a perpetrator.
The only other family massacre involving brothers and sisters recorded in the database was the 2015 massacre in Oklahoma. Two brothers, Robert and Michael Bever, were sentenced to life imprisonment for the stabbing deaths of their parents and three siblings. At the time of the murder, Robert was 18 and Michael was 16.
Fox said that in killings involving two criminals, “usually one is the leader and the other is the follower.”
Fox said: “Leaders are very satisfied with someone seeing them, looking up to them, and willing to do such things as others want.” “Then followers are generally disgusted because, in fact, the more dominant people praise them. Loyalty and strength. So it may be mutual—it may be an agreement, but usually one person makes the basic rules, and the other person agrees to the basic rules.”
