A South African dad has murdered his three children in cold blood.
The gruesome murder left everyone confounded as the cause of the attack is yet to be fully established by the authorities.
According to the police, the 48-year-old man shot and killed his three young children and then killed himself at home in Mthatha.
The tragic incident occurred on Sunday night in Northcrest, said Eastern Cape police spokeswoman captain Dineo Koena.
“The bodies were discovered this morning [Monday] by a family member who alerted the police. The motive for the killing is unknown and their names will be withheld until their next-of-kin are informed. An inquest is being investigated,” she said.
The children were the man’s two daughters aged six and eight and his son aged nine.
