Gowri Amma reached Karikkanvilla as a maid. The inmates of the house were 64-year-old George and his 60-year-old wife Rachael. They were leading a retired life after coming from Kuwait. The couple did not have any contacts with anyone outside. The couple were found murdered when Gowri Amma reached the house on October 6, 1980.

She saw the two lying in a pool of blood. A broken knife was found pierced on Rachael’s body. The police had questioned hundreds in the case.
