The bodies were discovered, Monday, by the city police of Allen after receiving a report from relatives who were concerned about them after one of the brothers posted a farewell message via the Instagram application, but the incident most likely occurred on Saturday evening, according to the authorities.
Farhan Tawhid (19 years) explained in his message that he concluded an agreement with his brother Tanweer Tawhid (21 years) in which they exchanged the promise of “suicide after killing the entire family,” according to the Allen Police spokesman, according to local media.
The victims from Bangladesh are Father Tawhid Al Islam (54 years), Mother Irene Islam (56 years), Grandmother Atf Al Nasa (77 years) and Farhan’s twin sister, Ferben Tawhid (19 years).
The two brothers had been suffering from psychological disorders for years, according to Farhan Tawhid in his letter, which was published by the “Washington Post” newspaper.
Farhan himself suffered from depression since his middle school education years, and his condition finally deteriorated despite the help provided by the family.

An information systems student at the University of Texas at Austin recounted that he had been evicted from his student residence in recent months after he said he intended to kill his family.
On his return to Allen in northern Dallas, his brother Tanweer found “depression and social anxiety”.
The two brothers finally decided to kill the entire family before committing suicide.
Tanweer Tawheed recently bought a weapon legally, according to police. In his letter, he ridiculed the measures aimed at controlling arms sales, saying that he had lied and confirmed that he would not suffer any mental disorders, which allowed him to acquire a weapon.
