Salt Lake police say the bodies of two people found inside an office building Saturday are a father and son who died as a result of a murder-suicide.
The bodies were discovered about 11:15 a.m. inside an office complex at 2936 S. Highland Drive. On Monday, police announced that Parth Gandhi, 49, killed his 16-year-old son and then committed suicide. Police have not released the name of the teen.

Gandhi had an office in the complex where the bodies were found and lived near Sunnyside Park. According to his website, he was a neuropsychologist and psychedelic therapist and earned a doctor of philosophy in clinical psychology and neuropsychology with a focus on neuro-imaging and brain injury.
