The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office was notified by a caller that a coworker tax accountant Mala Manwani who lives in the 25000 Block, Tomey Ct., Aldie, , Virginia, hadn’t come to work this week

Deputies checked the residence and the adult in question and another adult were found deceased inside. Both appear to have died from gunshot wounds. The victims are identified as Mala Manwani, 65 and her son Rishi Manwani, 32. There was no sign of a break in. Both had been shot more than once.

Mala Manwani, 65, and her son, 32-year-old Rishi Manwani were found dead in different parts of the home

"We suspect it was related to criminal activity that was going on in the residence," said Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman. Chapman did not say what kind of criminal activity is suspected.   He said the mother and son were targeted. 

The police is working to determine whether neighbors have outdoor surveillance video, which could help to resolve the issue. They are also checking social media and telephone records.
