Family Of Four Including 4-Year-Old Twin Boys Dead -- And Cops Believe The Killer Was ‘Located Within The Home’

[Warning: Potentially Triggering Content]

Bay Area family of four are dead in a shocking triple-murder-suicide.

On Monday, the San Mateo Police Department reported to a San Francisco home after the family’s nanny called in a welfare check — but when they arrived, things were anything but well. Cops received no response when knocking at the front door, so they scoured the perimeter. No signs of forced entry were found, but they were able to gain access to the home through an unlocked window. In a Monday Facebook release, the PD revealed that inside, they discovered “four people dead; 1 adult male, 1 adult female, and two children.” Those people have since been confirmed as ex-Google and Meta engineer Anand Sujith Henry, his wife Alice Benziger, and their four-year-old twin sons Noah and Neithan.

Completely and utterly awful.

They had fatal gunshot wounds, and lying next to them was a 9mm pistol with a loaded magazine. But cops aren’t investigating it as a break-in… because they’re actually “confident the person responsible was located within the home.”

Sources with direct knowledge told KTVU that Anand is believed to have shot his wife in the bathtub before turning the gun on himself. As for their children’s deaths, they are still under investigation as there was no physical trauma to their bodies. Police believe the twins were “smothered, strangled, or given a lethal overdose,” according to NBC Bay Area sources.

So, so sad.

As of now, no motives have been uncovered and no note was left at the scene. However, the reported that Anand had filed for divorce from Alice in 2016 prior to welcoming their sons — but it was never finalized. And that was so many years ago. As for recent troubles, nothing has been uncovered yet. See the SMPD’s full release (below):

The outlet also reported that relatives initially believed they died of a gas leak after the nanny called to inform them of their deaths, so getting the full spectrum of details must be absolutely heartbreaking. We can only imagine what they’re all going through right now.
