Officers found Rajan Rajaram, 54, Santhalatha Rajan, 51, and Anish Rajan Rajaram, 19, dead in their home in the 7000 block of Balfoure Circle, according to the Dublin Police Department. It called in the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation to assist after police arrived at the scene. Investigators said the victims were all family: a mother, father and son.
Officers went to the home just after 2 a.m. on Wednesday after a friend of one of the residents called to request a well-being check. Detectives said in their initial investigation that all three died from apparent gunshot wounds in a suspected murder-suicide. Officers did not see signs of forced entry inside the home. They also believe the bodies had been inside the house for several days.
