The Wife of the Madagascar man who killed their children and himself in Alexandria said that he was threatened to commit this crime as a form of revenge.
Three bodies were found including the man and his two children, discovered at a famous hotel in Mahatet al-Raml area, downtown Alexandria, on Saturday.
The Police have since conducted intensive investigations into the crime.
The wife said during investigations that: “he threatened me before that he would carry out the crime out of spite, and he said, ‘I will take revenge on you and kill your children.'”
“There were continuous disputes, he would threatened me to kill my children, he wanted to take revenge on me,” she added. The investigations also confirmed the validity of the wife’s statements.
The police had received a report from the management of the hotel on al-Shuhada Street in Mahatet al-Raml area, on Saturday, stating that three bodies had been found.
Detectives, accompanied by ambulances, moved to the scene, and investigations revealed the body of a 45-year-old man from Madagascar, fully clothed and hanging by a rope attached to the door of the bathroom.
The bodies of his two children, eight and five years old, were found inside a bathtub.
The father gave them sleeping pills and then drowned them in the bathtub before hanging himself.
Authorities listened to statements from the hotel management, and learnt that a housekeeping worker was the first to discover the crime.
The housekeeper knocked on the door of the room more than once, and no one responded. She assumed that the guest had left with his two children.
When she returned, she suspected something wrong and told management, who used the master key to open the room and find the bodies.
According to preliminary investigations, the father confessed in a letter left at the scene of the crime to killing his two children before committing suicide to get back at his wife.
