    The death comes more than two months after one of the security guards at the estate bungalow near Udhagamandalam was murdered by a gangon April 24 and a suspect died later in road mishap. Another suspect in the breakin-cum-murder was seriously injured in a road accident, that left his wife and daughter dead.
