The body of an entire family was found by their daughter who discovered the bodies in different rooms in the home after returning from a thanksgiving hunting trip.
Kelli Mata, her husband, David and two young sons, have been found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in their home in Louisiana, by her 18 years old daughter.
Kelli’s daughter who is yet to be named, found the bodies of her entire family stabbed to death after returning home from a thanksgiving trip and fled just after calling 911 to report the case.
According to Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand, David Mata stabbed his wife and sons around 11am.
A friend of Kelli’s 18-year-old daughter said it was hard to believe David could have committed the crime.
‘I didn’t think he would do something like that. He was such a good person. He was happy with her [Kelli].’
David who is originally from Spain and got married to Kelli in April, 2012 was a Mechanic at a car dealership and was said to have been found with knife wounds on his body with a knife laying under his body.
Legal reports have shown a different side to the perceived perfect dad of two, who pleaded to assaulting Kelli in 2010 and was given suspended sentence of one year in prison and also fined $540.
Also in 2002, 1,000 anabolic steroid tablets were found in David’s home. He pleaded guilty and was placed on probation for three years by a judge.
