The People’s Procuracy of the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho said on Tuesday that it was working with the municipal police to investigate a case where a Vietnamese man had killed his wife and 11-month-old daughter before committing suicide by jumping off a tall building.
According to the initial investigation records, Nguyen Thi Tuyet Nhung, a local woman, reported to the local police that she had found 22-year-old V.T.N.A. and 11-month-old D.N.Q. lying dead with several cuts on their bodies in the bathroom of a rental room in Can Tho’s Cai Rang District at around 6:20 pm on April 26.
Later, the police received another report of a man’s jumping to his death at Tay Nguyen Plaza in the same district.
The functional forces then verified that the man was Dang Ngoc Khanh, 28, from northern Phu Tho Province, who was also A.’s husband and Q.’s father.
Khanh and his wife and daughter had relocated to Can Tho at the beginning of 2021 and earned a living from working as a Grab motorbike partner since then.
He previously had a drink with A.’s father on the afternoon of April 26 before returning to his small family’s rental room and picking a quarrel with his wife.
While A. was giving their toddler a bath in the bathroom, Khanh suddenly used a knife to slash both the wife and daughter to death.
After committing the murder, Khanh went to a high floor of Tay Nguyen Plaza to end his life by jumping off the building.
