According to a police official, it wasn’t discovered until Friday night when a relative came to check on them.

Moreover, the police spokesman said the mother’s sister paid a visit to the home because she hadn’t heard anything from the family, and that is when her nephew told her that he had killed his father, mother and brother. She dialled the cops, who confirmed finding three dead bodies in the house.

The police then apprehended the adolescent, a fifteen-year-old minor, who had been alone for three days in the house with the dead bodies of his mother, father and brother.

The boy told the police that he argued with his mother over his lousy school grades, adding then he used his father’s hunting rifle to shoot his mother, then his 10-year-old brother and then waited for his father to arrive before targeting him in the chest.

As per the police spokesman, the family was local to the area but not known to police authorities.

As per the investigation, it is reported that one thing being considered is that the dispute was sparked over the 15-year-old’s punishment for failing five subjects at school in which his internet access at home had been taken away by the parents.
