Allen news, Texas news.

A Texas family massacre was discovered on Monday when a worried friend read a chilling note from the killers and called 911.

Allen authorities believe Farhan and Tanvir Towhid, ages 19 and 21 respectively, had slaughtered their parents, sister, and grandmother on Saturday before taking their own lives.

“Hey everyone. I killed myself and my family,” Farhan said in his Instagram post.

“If I killed just myself, they would be miserable. I love my family. I genuinely do, and that’s exactly why I decided to kill them.”
