Anand Sujith Henry : Indian-Origin Couple Found Dead at Home in US

An Indian-origin family from Kerala, including two young children, has been tragically found dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide case in the US state of California. The bodies were discovered at their residence in San Mateo on Tuesday.

The family members have been identified as Anand Sujith Henry, 42, his wife Alice Priyanka, 40, and their 4-year-old twins Noah and Neithan. San Mateo police officers were initially dispatched to the home for a welfare check after receiving a report. Upon arrival, they found no signs of forced entry but noticed an unlocked window.

Concerned for the family’s safety, the officers entered the home and were met with a devastating scene. The two children were found deceased inside a bedroom, while Anand and Alice were discovered in the bathroom, both with gunshot wounds. A 9mm pistol and a loaded magazine were also found in the bathroom.

The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office is currently working to positively identify each person and notify their next of kin. Meanwhile, the investigation into the cause of death is ongoing.

Anand and Alice were both IT professionals who had been living in the USA for several years. Anand worked as a software engineer, while Alice held a senior analyst position. The couple’s sudden and tragic demise has left their friends, family, and the Indian community in shock and mourning.

Sadly, this is not the first incident involving the death of Indian-origin individuals in the USA this year. Just last week, Indian-origin student Sameer Kamath was found dead in a nature preserve, and 19-year-old Shreyas Reddy Beniger, a student at the Lindner School of Business, was also discovered deceased. Other incidents include the deaths of Purdue University student Neel Acharya, Vivek Saini in Georgia, and Akul Dhawan outside the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

In another distressing incident, a student from Hyderabad was brutally attacked by four armed robbers near his house in Chicago. The victim, Syed Mazahir Ali, sustained serious injuries and had his phone stolen. He had traveled to the US to pursue a Master’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University.

These incidents highlight the need for increased safety measures and support for the Indian community residing in the United States. Authorities must work diligently to ensure the well-being and security of all individuals, regardless of their background or origin.
