1309162_1280x720SAN JOSE, Calif. (Diya TV) — Police are investigating a murder after Golam and Shamima Rabbi were found dead in their Bay Area home on Sunday by friends who came to check up on them.

The Rabbi’s migrated to the U.S. from Bangladesh decades ago, according to friends, and planted firm roots down in the Bay Area. They were said to be polite, humble and a peaceful couple.

“So that’s why it’s so difficult to reconcile to the tragic, violent end to such simple, gentle souls,” Evergreen Islamic Center member Hasan Rahim told KGO.

A group of the Rabbi’s friends entered their home on Sunday through an unlocked sliding glass door. They came to check on the elderly couple after not hearing from them for a matter of days. According to the KGO report, the friends found the couple murdered in a gruesome scene. Their bodies were found on the floor next to a note that read, “sorry, my first killing was clumsy,” according to the report.

According to NBC Bay Area, a second note was found written on the wall, claiming the woman begged for her life. “I can’t be like you, telling a lie. I can’t love someone without telling them,” it also read.

The Rabbi’s lived close to the mosque they attended and were devoted members of their Muslim faith. “We are surprised that they are no longer with us and especially going away in such a manner is something we just can’t come to grips with,” Evergreen Islamic Center member Faisal Yazadi said.

Fortunately, the couple’s sons, who are ages 17 and 21, were not in the house during the murders. Police said their parents were shot at least once, but they have no additional information or motive for the killings at this time.
