The man’s brother told the Daily News that when he heard that his brother had not returned home last night, he tried calling him several times.
“I eventually got hold off him at 12.30am. I asked him where he was and where the children were.
“He said he had killed them and cut the call,” said the brother.
“My heart sank and I went cold. I thought he was joking. I later went to the clinic (where the children were taken this morning). I am still having flashbacks of seeing him dead,” he said. – Additional reporting by Se-Anne Rall
