Girl, 4 Named A Hero After Keeping Her 2-Month Old Brother Alive For 3 Days After Dad Shot Mom & Killed Himself
A neighbor discovered the two young children unharmed but dehydrated and hungry downstairs at the family's home in the Chatsworth neighborhood of Los Angeles on April 14 as their parents' lifeless bodies sat in an upstairs bedroom.
A medical examiner identified the father as 46-year-old David Kooros Parsa and mother as 38-year-old Mihoko Koike Parsa.
Investigators determined that the murder-suicide likely took place three days prior on April 11.
'Our little angel was able to keep herself and her brother alive,' Los Angeles Police Captain Maureen Ryan said of the four-year-old.
'The baby is a miracle baby and the little girl is a hero. She's an absolute hero.'
