Murthy left a suicide note in which he said that a builder named Mahesh had cheated him and that he was also upset over some family differences. Murthy owned a 385 sq yard plot in Ajit Singh Nagar in the city, which reportedly was given to a builder by his father for development, without Murthy’s knowledge. Since then, Murthy, who was said to be sensitive, was upset with his father.

According to Machavaram CI K Umahaheswara Rao, Murthy’s family was about to leave for the US on Tuesday and he to Vijayawada on Sunday to take his parents to Hyderabad. However, saying that he had some work and would join them later, he had sent his parents to Hyderabad.

When he did not turn up as promised on Monday, Murthy’s father K Veeraiah, a retired employee with commercial taxes department, made several attempts to contact him. With no response, the worried father rang up has relative Pawan to check his house and contact Murthy.

On Monday night, when Pawan went to the house of Veeraiah, he found it locked from inside.
