Former Meta Engineer’s Family Found Dead in Their dMillion Dollar Home

San Mateo, California – A California community mourns after a heartbreaking incident unfolded in a San Mateo residence. Late on Monday morning, a family of four was found dead, with authorities suspecting the case to be a murder-suicide. Anand Sujith Henry, a former Meta engineer, his wife Alice Benzinger, a data scientist, and their twin four-year-old sons were discovered lifeless in their home. The police are investigating the incident, treating it as a tragic act of violence.

Authorities made the devastating discovery while conducting a welfare check at the family’s residence. Upon arrival, they found the parents with gunshot wounds in a bathroom, along with a 9mm pistol and a loaded magazine. The lifeless bodies of the twin boys were discovered in one of the house’s bedrooms.

Although the cause of death for the young children has not been revealed, sources suggest that they may have been smothered, strangled, or given a lethal overdose. The absence of physical trauma on their bodies has led investigators to consider these possibilities.

The motive behind this tragic event remains unknown as the investigation continues. The San Mateo Police Department emphasizes that there is no immediate danger to the community, as the person believed to be responsible was found within the residence. Additionally, there are no indications of forced entry into the home, further perplexing authorities.

Previous incidents at the residence have prompted police responses, although the details of these calls have not been disclosed. Court records reveal that Henry, who had previously worked at Meta and Google, filed for divorce from Benzinger, a data science manager at Zillow, in 2016. However, the divorce did not materialize, and the couple had recently moved into their San Mateo home.

As the investigation continues, detectives are diligently seeking evidence, conducting interviews, and examining the possible motives behind this tragic incident.
