Mother and 4 children butchered to death in mass stabbing

An absolute slaughter took place on Saturday night in an apartment in Brooklyn, New York. A mother and her four young children were stabbed. Three of the children including 1-year-old William Zhuo, 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, and 9-year-old Linda Zhuo were pronounced dead at the scene. Paramedics rushed 37-year-old Qiao Zhen Li and 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo to the hospital, but sadly, they both died as well. Police say that a "person of interest" was found at the scene and being held. It is suspected that the man being held is related to the victims. The father, who was not home at the time of the stabbing, arrived to an incredibly gruesome scene.

Neighbors report that the father was hysterical after being told by police of what had happened. How could he not be?  He just lost all the people he loves the most in such a horrific way. My heart breaks for him and for the family that was killed in such a gruesome way. All those children? Why would anyone do such a thing?

It makes my stomach hurt to think of what this mother and children went through. It hurts my heart to imagine the sorrow and utter devastation that the father is left to face.

The suspect in custody has not yet been charged. This is the kind of crime that leaves me feeling like the world just makes no sense at times. Police say it is looking like a case of domestic violence and I find it terrifying that so many times it's NOT strangers we need to fear, but people who are close to us. It's heartbreaking.
