37 year old man named Jeremy Raju Srinivasan, his wife, Natalie Altier Srinivasan, 35, and their kids, a six-year-old girl named Siena and a two-year-old boy named MJ were all found dead at their home in in Texas on Tuesday morning in an apparent murder-suicide. Police say the cause of death was gunshot wounds.
Investigators are trying to piece together the events leading up to the deaths. Police believe Jeremy killed his family and turned the gun on himself but a motive for the killing is yet unknown.
Jeremy’s father alerted the police after he says he got a text from his son at 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday reading: ‘Everything is not OK. Please call police.’
‘We’re interviewing neighbors and family members and others to try to piece together exactly what took place here. We’re investigating this right now as a murder-suicide, ‘Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said.
‘Anytime you have children involved like this. It hits close. It’s hard.’
According to Jeremy’s Facebook page, he is pro-gun as well as a staunch supporter of the police force and the American military. The father accused of killing his own children made several statements bashing Planned Parenthood, the Obama administration, illegal immigrants, and ISIS.
Police have not yet said whether there was a history of domestic violence or any other incidents involving the family.
Jeremy Srinivasan and Natalie Altier married on December 11, 2009, in Texas after Jeremy divorced his first wife.
Jeremy started his own company in 2013 called LED Shop of Texas which installs lights in trucks. Natalie was a former cosmetologist and stay at home mom.
