PALEMBANG (The Jakarta Post/Asia News Network): A Palembang father who allegedly shot dead his family and pet dogs before ending his own life left two notes saying that he was “so tired”, but loved his “wife and children” and that he “could not afford to leave them alone in this world.”

In a rare murder-suicide case that has shaken the South Sumatra capital, 45-year-old businessman Fransiskus Xaverius Ong, known by his colleagues as a “family man”, is strongly believed to have killed his 43-year-old wife, Margereth Yentin Liana, his 18-year-old son, Rafael Fransiskus, and 11-year-old daughter, Kathlyn Fransiskus.
