A mother and four children who were found killed and decapitated in New Cairo's Shorouk City were murdered by the father, an Egyptian police investigation has revealed.
Manal A., 27 years old, was found brutally murdered along with her four children in their residence in Shorouk City after neighbors reported a bad smell. A knife was found by their side, and the husband Karam A., 38 years old, was not there.
Security forces then found out that Karam had fled to his hometown in the Sohag Governorate so they ambushed him and arrested him at the Sohag railway station.
Karam confessed to killing his wife and children after suspecting his wife’s infidelity, adding that they were separated three days before he killed them.
Egypt has witnessed several murders in recent months. In May, an entire family was found killed in Al-Rehab, and in June, a mother and her two children were killed by the father in Boulaq El-Dakrour. In August, a man killed his daughter’s fiancé and buried him in the apartment.
A few days ago, a father and his four children were found dead. The forensics report revealed that they were poisoned.
