The New Year holiday saw a pair of multiple murder-suicides garner headlines, one taking place in southeastern Brazil, with the second tragedy occurring in America’s South Carolina state.
A man in broke into a Campinas house Saturday night where his ex-wife, their 8-year-old son and other family members were celebrating the holiday. Carrying several firearms, the man murdered the boy and his mother along with at least ten others.
Four people were found deceased in a South Carolina home Sunday evening in what also appears to be a murder-suicide. A mother and father, along with their two children, ages four and one, are believed to have died of gunshot wounds. Police were initially searching for family patriarch Jorge Chavez, but later said he was among the dead.
