On April 23, a security guard working at her Kodanad estate was found hacked to death.
Within a week, two key suspects had met with accidents. C Kanagaraj, Jayalalithaa's former driver, was hit by a car while on the Salem-Ulundurpet National Highway, while KV Sayan's car was hit by a truck between Palakkad and Thrissur.
Kanagaraj succumbed to his injuries. Syam lost his wife and child.
