Police are still struggling to solve the mystery behind the alleged suicide of Wadala resident Donatus Anthony (49) and his family. Donatus, his wife Elizabeth (45), son Jason (12) and daughter Vivian (4) were found dead at their flat in a Bhakti Park high-rise on Monday.
Police found that Donatus had composed a text message to his nephew Gracious Anthony while the latter was still at his house, but sent it only after he left. "The message read 'I am in danger'. He composed it on Friday evening when Gracious was still in the house. It was programmed, however, to be sent an hour after Gracious left. We are trying to find out the reason behind this," said an officer with the Wadala TT police station.
Police were initially surprised that despite Donatus claiming that he was in danger, Gracious had neither told his parents about it nor reported it to the police. Gracious was questioned about this at length on Monday.
Donatus, over the last one year, had also built an aura of mystery around himself, telling people, including his brother Anil, that he was working on a secret project, police said.
Meanwhile, post-mortem reports remain inconclusive about the cause of the deaths. "The viscera and blood samples of the deceased will be further analysed before an opinion can be offered. The two cans found near the bodies are also being analysed," said the officer.
While no suicide note was found in the house, the police are analysing the contents of Donatus' computer to check if he kept a journal or a blog, sources said.
