Gambling losses possible motive for murder
Raghunandan Yandamuri, an Indian software engineer, tried to kidnap a baby and her grandmother after he lost $15,000 to $20,000 at a casino. The 26-year-old man claimed he wasn’t planning to kill them, but he panicked and killed the grandmother
in a fight. But things got even worse.
Yandamuri dropped the 10-month-old girl who started crying. He put a handkerchief in her mouth, wrapped a towel around her head and left her in the fitness center of the apartment tower. A few hours later, Yandamuri wanted to give the baby some milk, but discovered that she was lifeless.

Police detained the 26-year-old man a couple of days after the incident. Yandamuri admitted he had a gambling problem. “A few weeks ago, I cashed $20,000 at a casino, but later I gambled away about $17,500,” Yandamuri said.
