Because the person who wants to die knows at some level how much it will hurt the ones they love if they kill themselves.  Wanting to keep the family from hurting, they may actually wish to kill the family members to spare them the pain of surviving the loved one's suicide.

  Every human being has an inner core of self-hatred.  How you choose to deal with that self-hatred determines your personality type.  On one end of the spectrum is complete denial, it's called self-esteem and it isn't healthy.  The other end is called depression and it's mankind's natural state.  Right next to depression is displacement, wherein you often find urges to kill others, quite often, those you love the most.  When someone is dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts, they often swerve over into displacement because that's easier for the mind to deal with.

Zimindorf, you have people on a spectrum that has depression on one end and denial on the other.  Where is happiness on this spectrum?  This scares me..!  : )

It is a disease; they think the bad is outweighing the good. Suicidal people believe there is something better out there than where they are now, they just want to bring their loved ones with them. Unless, their loved ones have caused them pain, than thats a whole new mental illness. They think they are going to a bad place and want to take others with them.

In the depths of suicidal despair, it's fair to say that the distressed person is not rationalising properly.  He or she may honestly feel that life is too difficult for family members, based on his or her own experience.  The distressed person may want to spare his family the same distress.

Either depression or hatred. Not wanting others to feel the pain of loss or could just despise a person to a certain point that you would just kill them right before the suicide. It would give the person more motivation to actually kill them selves as well.
