Six family members killed in alleged mass murder in southern Vietnam
A wood processing businessman and all five members of his family were found dead in a reported mass killing early Tuesday.
To their numbness, a group of workers discovered the bodies of Quoc Anh, the 47-year-old owner of the Quoc Anh wood processing facility located in Chon Thanh District in the southern province of Binh Phuoc, and his wife, Nguyen Thi Anh Nguyet around 6:00 am today.
Three other people were also found dead nearby, according to preliminary information.

A boy, aged around ten, was also found dead near the facility’s fence, with his throat slashed. The kid had apparently attempted an escape.
The family was known as one of the most affluent in the district.
Anh’s wood processing plant, which is located near Minh Hung- Korea Industrial Park on National Highway 13, and employs approximately 100 workers, is among the largest ones in Binh Phuoc.
Investigation into the case is ongoing./.
