Dad killed himself, his wife and 3 girls after forging a Covid card and was afraid his child would be taken away when caught

A DAD killed himself, his wife and three girls after he forged a Covid card and feared his children would be taken away from him.

Police found two adults, both 40 years old, and three children aged 4, 8, and 10 dead from gunshot wounds at their home in Koenigs Wusterhausen, Germany.

The man, named by police as Devid R, wrote a note in which he said he had forged vaccine certificates for his wife Linda.

Prosecutor Gernot Bantleon said her employer found out – and the couple later feared they would be arrested and lose their child.

Police were alerted by witnesses who saw lifeless bodies in the house, according to a statement from police and prosecutors.

In Germany, it became an offense two weeks ago to submit fake Covid vaccine certificates.

Those caught will face a fine or a year in prison.

Investigators suspect that the man killed his wife and children and then committed suicide.

They found a gun in the house, but it is unclear if it was the weapon used to fire the fatal shots.

Police said they found no indication that anyone else was present at the time – or that anyone had tried to find their way into the home.

Police said autopsies on the five bodies were underway and would determine how long the family had been dead.

The macabre incident comes as Germany tightens restrictions to try to prevent a fourth wave of Covid.

Since last month, employees have been required to prove they have been vaccinated, recovered or tested negative for Covid.

Last week, German authorities agreed to ban unvaccinated people from all essential businesses such as grocery stores, pharmacies and bakeries.

They also plan to make vaccinations mandatory for some jobs.
