(Scroll down for video) Four members of one family, were found dead in their home in England.

Police said that the father stabbed his wife and children to death in their beds.

The father then stayed at the family home with the bodies for several days, before hanging himself in a bedroom.

Jitendra Lad, 49, is believed to have killed his wife, Daksha Lad, 44, and their daughters, Trisha, 19, and Nisha, 16, in his family house in Clayton, Bradford.

The motive for the killings remains a mystery. Police have not yet found a suicide note in the house. Neighbors were shocked with the deaths of the family as they were very respected people.

Mr. Lad was a council worker and school association chairman. His wife was a clerical officer with the local council.

A concerned neighbor called the police after not seeing the daughters leaving from the house a few days. Officers broke in and found the bodies.

A post-mortem examination confirmed that the father died by hanging on Monday.

The autopsy revealed that his wife and daughters have been stabbed to death in their sleep sometime during the weekend.

19-year-old Trisha was in her second year at Leeds University, studying for a degree in biochemistry. The daughters were described as very intelligent and inseparable.
