Officers discovered a 77-year-old man and his 29-year-old son dead, killed from stab wounds in an apparent murder/suicide inside a home in Garden Grove, police said Sunday.
The victims were identified as Thinh Vu and his son, Thomas Vu, the Garden Grove Police Department reported.
Officers were dispatched at 4:16 p.m. Saturday in response to a welfare check call for a home in the 11880 block of Stuart Drive.
“The reporting party was checking on his father and brother, who he had not heard from in days,” according to a police statement. “When the son did not get a response at his father’s residence, he called the police for assistance.”
