A seemingly normal New Delhi family of 11 was found dead in their home in July 2018, and though years have passed, the so-called “Burari Deaths” continue to haunt the public today due to their bizarre, disturbing nature. The idea of one person killing 10 of their family members, then taking their own life is just as unfathomable as a family suicide pact in which teenagers as young as 15 voluntarily ended their own lives.
The Burari Deaths baffled police for three years, caused psychologists to ponder rare psychological disorders, and even spawned a Netflix documentary that agonized an exhausted and frightened film crew. It remains an intriguing case today due to the event's strange - and, as some believe, supernatural - underpinnings.
