Pathanamthitta: A man and his son were found dead at a house in Ennath in Adoor. The deceased were identified as Mathew T Alex (47) and his elder son Melvin Mathew. Mathew’s younger son woke up in the morning to find his elder brother and father dead in their house. Neighbours rushed to the spot hearing the young boy cry in shock.

Mathew, who was a native of Adoor, was reportedly staying with his children. He had differences with his wife and the couple were living separately. While Mathew was found hanging in the guest room, his elder son was found lying dead on his bed. Police suspect that Mathew would have killed his son before hanging himself. The investigation is progressing at the moment.
