PLAINSBORO, NJ – A shocking incident has unfolded in Plainsboro, New Jersey, where a family of four was found dead in their home. After they were all discovered, authorities began a homicide investigation into the incident. The victims, Taj Pratap Singh, 43, his wife Sonal Parihar, 42, and their two children, were discovered in their Titus Lane house around 4:30 p.m. The cause of their deaths remains unknown, with authorities exploring all avenues, including the possibility of a murder-suicide.

Family members, who congregated outside the house, remembered Singh and Parihar as a ‘joyful couple.’ Both were employed in the IT industry, with one also working in HR. Singh, the father, held a position as a Lead APIX Engineer at Ness Digital Engineering, according to his LinkedIn page.

Singh was a well-known figure in his community and was actively involved in the Parent-Teacher Association at his children’s school. Superintendent David Aderhold of the West-Windsor Plainsboro district expressed his deep condolences over the incident, mentioning that it involved a family with children at Wicoff and Millstone River Schools.

According to property records, the couple had acquired their Titus Lane residence in August 2018 for $635,000.
