Dad Gets Home Moments After Wife & 4 Children Are Stabbed to Death

flowerA mom in Brooklyn, NY and her four children -- ages ranging from 1 years-old to 9 -- were all found stabbed to death in their apartment on Saturday night. No official charges have been filed just yet, but a man, who some are reporting is a relative of the family, was taken into custody shortly after authorities arrived on the grisly scene.

Details currently remain scant on this horrific incident, but according to the Daily Mail, the sister of Qiao Zhen Li, the 37-year-old mother who was killed, was in the house during the murders, and she called both the police and Qiao's husband. Miraculously, the sister somehow remained unscathed while her family was brutally killed. But, sadly, Qiao's husband arrived moments after the stabbings took place.

There's no way on earth Qiao's husband could have done anything to stop this senseless crime from occurring, but if what the Mail is reporting is true, and he did arrive just moments after the incident occurred, he will probably always have the small thought in the back of his head that he could have done something to stop it. It's only human nature. But he couldn't have, and he should never blame himself for what happened. What this man has experienced -- finding his entire family dead -- is something no human should ever have to go through. We will never be able to make sense of something this awful. Five innocent people died -- four children for god's sake -- because of some deranged lunatic.

Thoughts and prayers to this poor family. It's obviously going to be a long road ahead, but hopefully somehow Qiao's husband and sister will be able to find peace in their lives at some point. A true tragedy.

What do you think of this?

Most of your details and fact's are wrong.

Hardly surprising Gracalynsmom, since Ms Fabian-Weber is using the Daily Mail as her source..... one small step above the National Enquirer.

I think it's horrible.  What else am I supposed to think?  Those poor kids!  The terror and pain they must have suffered.  It's awful.  That poor husband who just lost his whole family.

Why was the sister spared?  Makes you think......

The sister survived because she was not there to begin with. If Ms Fabian-Weber used reputable sources she would have known that the mom called her husband at work because the cousin was acting funny. When she could not reach her husband by phone then mom called her mother-in-law in China.  Mother-in-law then called her daughter (the sister) who lived near by and the daughter/sister and her husband went to the house and banged on the door. They called 911 when the cousin answered the door covered in blood.

Using the Daily Mail as a credible source, as Ms Fabian-Weber does, is just one small step above using  the National Enquirer or Weekly World News as a legitimate news source. .

Just saw this story on the 11 o clock news. It was the husbands cousin who did it!  Sick bastard was jealous of their success and what they had that he did not!  He's being held on no bail.

You really should edit your story. You also should fact check and fact check again before you post things. Saying the sister was in the house leads one to believe that she had some devious part in it, when in fact she wasn't in the home to begin with. Shameful that cafemom lets you write for them when you use disreputable sources and post incorrect facts.
