Additionally, a total of four victims were identified in the incident, and all of them were from the same family. Also, the officials had taken the suspect into custody.
Along with the farm couple, one of their son Graham Tighe was also brutally killed on the spot. But fortunately, Tighe’s younger brother managed to flee the farm massacre with a bullet wound. He was the one who had reached out for help after escaping to another property and contacting authorities.
He could go several kilometers away in a car to raise the alarm, as the property was in a rural, hilly area. He was airlifted to the McKay Base Hospital in an emergency situation as he was blood-soaked.
The officials reported he was undergoing surgery for the bullet wound he had received. Later they again updated he was in stable condition and was in the intensive care unit.
