Dublin Police Release Victims’ Names in Death Investigation

The Dublin Police Department has released the identities of three adults found dead in a Balfoure Circle home Jan. 18.

Responding officers found Rajan Rajaram, 54; Santhalatha Rajan, 51; and Anish Rajan Rajaram, 19; deceased inside their residence, 7398 Balfoure Circle. They are identified as a father, mother and son. Police worked to notify the next of kin before identifying the victims.­

Just after 2 a.m. Jan. 18, Dublin Police officers responded to the home for a well-being check called in by a friend of one of the residents.

Based on the initial investigation, it appears that the individuals died by firearm and had been deceased for several days. Officers did not observe signs of forced entry to the home.

Preliminarily, Dublin Police detectives suspect the deaths are the result of a murder-suicide. After processing the scene, officers do not consider that there is an ongoing threat to the public.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, reach out for support. Call 911 to contact the Dublin Police if in crisis. You can also call or text 988 to connect with the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, which provides 24/7 confidential support for people in distress as well as prevention and crisis resources.
