  • Near my home a man my age killed his wife and his two little daughters, three and five years old. Then he tried to do suicide by burning the house.

    At first nobody understood why. Everything seemed to be expectionally well in that family. The man worked in well-paid job, they had a two-storey house, two cars, a golden retriever and a 52-inch plasma HDTV.

    Police talked with nearest neighbour, the one who met the family man just before tragedy.

    The neighbour said: "This is a total shock. Nobody could have guessed. When I met him at the garage door and asked how are you, he smiled and raised his thumb."
