Tragic Investigation: Indian-origin Family Found Dead in $5 Million Massachusetts Mansion

DOVER, Mass. – Police in Massachusetts are investigating the deaths of a wealthy Indian-origin family found dead in their $5 million mansion. The bodies of Rakesh Kamal, 57, his wife, Teena, 54, and their 18-year-old daughter, Ariana, were discovered in their 11-bedroom, 13-bathroom mansion on Thursday.

Norfolk District Attorney (DA) Michael Morrissey has described the incident as a “domestic violence situation,” as a gun was found near Rakesh’s body. The medical examiner’s office is still investigating the cause and manner of the deaths.

The family previously ran a now-defunct education systems company called EduNova. Their daughter Ariana, who graduated from Milton Academy, was remembered as a bright, kind young woman. She was also described as a brilliant student in her first year at Middlebury College, where she was studying neuroscience.

The grim discovery of the bodies was made after a relative had not heard from the family for one or two days and went to check on them. The family’s mansion had faced financial problems in recent years, as it went into foreclosure and was sold for $3 million.

Dover, where the family lived, is about 20 miles southwest of downtown Boston. The investigation into the deaths of the family members is ongoing.
