US: Indian-origin family found dead in Massachusetts mansion

PTC Web Desk: In a heartbreaking event unfolding in Massachusetts, United States, a family of Indian descent — Rakesh Kamal (57), his wife Teena (54), and their 18-year-old daughter Ariana, was found dead in their opulent $5 million residence situated in Dover. The distressing incident came to light around 7:30 pm on Thursday, prompting an investigation led by Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey, who has suggested a possible domestic violence scenario. While a firearm was found near Rakesh Kamal's body, specifics regarding the cause of death await confirmation pending the medical examiner's report.

The Indian family, earlier engaged in the education systems sector through their enterprise EduNova, appeared to have encountered financial challenges in recent times. Following a lack of communication from the family for a day or two, a concerned relative made the grim discovery, urging an immediate visit to their Massachusetts mansion. Investigations, although in their preliminary stages, have not indicated external involvement, implying the potential of domestic violence.


According to available reports and records, the Kamal family had procured the extensive 19,000-square-foot estate, boasting 11 bedrooms, for a reported $4 million back in 2019. At the time of the tragic incident, no other individuals were residing on the premises. Both Rakesh and Teena Kamal possessed notable educational backgrounds and had affiliations with esteemed institutions before their company's dissolution in 2021. Teena's financial struggles were evident with her bankruptcy filing, while Ariana pursued neuroscience studies at Middlebury College.

The appalling event has profoundly impacted the Dover community, unaccustomed to such violence, as underscored by District Attorney Morrissey. Highlighting the rarity of such occurrences in Norfolk County, Morrissey emphasized the universal challenges impacting communities irrespective of their location or affluence.

The investigation into this distressing incident continues, and further details are awaited as the authorities strive to unravel the circumstances surrounding this tragic event.
