JOHNS CREEK, GA (CBS46) -

The cause of death for the family found dead inside a Johns Creek apartment Monday has been released.

According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office, the victims are Sindiver Grover, 53, his wife, Damanjit Kaur-Grover, 47, and their two sons, Gurtej, 5, and Sartaj, 12.

The medical examiner said Gurtej and Sartaj were stabbed to death, Damanjit Kaur-Grover was beaten to death and Sindiver Grover hung himself.  The medical examiner's report confirms it was a murder-suicide.

"It's still an active crime scene," said Johns Creek police Chief Ed Densmore during a news conference Tuesday afternoon. "It's still fluid. The officers are still at the crime scene right now. We haven't wrapped up that portion of it, so I'm not prepared to answer anything as far as motive or anything along those lines."

The officers made the discovery at the Aylesbury Farms apartments in the 6100 block of Abbotts Bridge Road just before noon after getting a request to check on a woman who hadn't shown up for work.

The family attended Gurudwara Sahib, a Sikh temple in Roswell.  The temple has scheduled a vigil for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Wilson Creek Elementary and River Trail Middle School, the schools the boys attended, both had grief counselors on hand. 

"Please let them know it is OK to feel sad about a child's passing and if they want to talk to someone, we are here to help," wrote Wilson Creek Principal Andrea Cushing in a letter to parents.

Damanjit Kaur-Grover worked for Emory Healthcare. Emory released the following statement:

"Emory Healthcare is saddened to learn of the loss of our employee, Damanjit "Daisy" Grover, who passed away on Monday, Feb. 4.

"Daisy was a beloved member of the Emory Healthcare staff and was known for her love and compassion for her children, family and patients. Our deepest sympathy and condolences go out to Daisy's family members and friends during this time of loss."

This becomes Johns Creek's first murder case since it officially became a city in December 2006. The fact that the case involves children makes it particularly troublesome for investigators.

"We are all human," said Densmore. "We're all parents. We have families. You deal with something like this, it will take a little bit out of you, of course."
