During Friday’s press conference, prosecutor Łukasz Wawrzyniak announced that the autopsies of the victims from Chodzież ended on Thursday evening. – Their preliminary results confirm our earlier findings at the scene of the tragedy – said the spokesman for the Poznań district prosecutor’s office. He said five people – a four-month-old baby, his 38-year-old mother, a 41-year-old father, a 72-year-old woman (mother of the 41-year-old suspect) and a 73-year-old man (father of the probable perpetrator) – died from cut wounds to the neck. As it was established, the older members of the family died first.
According to the expert, the parents of the 41-year-old died three to five days after the inspection. The child, his mother and the possible killer lost their lives 48 to 72 hours after the inspection.
– The abuser’s wife was bound and had tape over her mouth. The parents of the probable perpetrator, in turn, had wounds on their hands showing that they tried to defend themselves against the attacker, the prosecutor informed.
Prosecutors say they are trying to establish a motive for the 41-year-old’s actions. – Tests have been commissioned, thanks to which we will find out whether he was under the influence of alcohol or other psychoactive substances at the critical moment – said the prosecutor.
“We are still clarifying all aspects of this case,” he said. He added that investigators are “trying to understand the motivation of the 41-year-old man.”
– We have established that before he dealt a fatal blow to the neck, he also mutilated himself in other places – said Wawrzyniak.
He noted that the investigators are waiting for the detailed results of the autopsy, on the basis of which they will try to reconstruct what happened in the house in Chodzież in as much detail as possible.

Investigators and services immediately after the crime pointed out that there were no problems with violence in the family, and there were no signs that things might be bad there. The mayor of Chodzież noted that “there were no signals of irregularities”.
Investigators had no information that there were violent situations in the house. Andrzej Borowiak, spokesman for the Wielkopolska police, said that the 41-year-old had not been convicted before and the family did not have the so-called blue card. For the past two months, the police have not intervened in her Chodzież home. Young parents have recently moved to Chodzież. They came from Sochaczew. “They came to take care of the perpetrator’s father,” said Wawrzyniak.
For the 41-year-old, it was a return to the home where he grew up and lived for years. According to local residents, the family did not have much contact with their neighbors. “They were so secretive,” said one woman.
Neighbors say they last saw the mother and child on a walk on Thursday. – The sister-in-law saw that they were going for a walk with the child. But since it was raining, they came back in a moment – described one of the neighbors.
