Before I got here, I went to the police station but I was told that the police were already at the scene. When I came here, I met a lot of security people and emergency workers.
“What I heard was that one of the tenants killed his wife and son over infidelity. They had been having issues. I know that when my father was alive, he tried talking to them and even advised the man to let the woman go if he thinks the boy was not his son,” he said.
