KGO-TV reported that a note was found next to the bodies with the message, “Sorry, my first kill was clumsy.”

Golamrabbi was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of murder, and his brother was booked into the Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of murder, police said Thursday. There are no other suspects in the case, police said.


The Rabbis were longtime members and volunteers with the South Bay Islamic Assn. and the Evergreen Islamic Center in San Jose. 

“We ask Allah to forgive the deceased, shower his mercy on them, and make their graves a garden from paradise,” the association said in a statement.
