Thrissur: A three-member family from Ernakulam was found dead inside a lodge here on Thursday. Santhosh Peter, his wife Suni Peter and daughter Ayrine were settled in Chennai for a long time.
In the wee hours of Thursday, the trio was found dead inside the lodge room near Thrissur KSRTC bus depot, Manorama News reported.
East police said they recovered a suicide note from the room. According to a member of the investigating team, financial issues might have led the family to take the extreme step.
“Santhosh was found hanging on the ceiling fan inside the room as his wife lay lifeless on the bed; the daughter's body was seen in the bathroom,” the officer said.
“The family were to vacate the room on Wednesday night. When there was no response from them, we broke the lock open. They had died by then,” a staff member said.
Thrissur East police said the cause of death will be confirmed only after the post-mortem.
