John h, a, m?

Was the box a physical object (and not a picture etc.)? If yes, was it a mechanical device? Was it a black box from a plane?

Did his relatives die? Were his relatives killed? Died in accident? Relevant what exactly relatives? How much time between death and John's seeing of the black box: seconds: minutes? hours? days? weeks? months? years?

Was john like at the crash site rummaging when he found the box? Was it relevant how he saw the black box? Was the plane hijacked? Did the black box recording say what plane number it was and figured it out from that?

Um, no planes are involved, detective...

Was the box a mechanical device? Electronical? Relevant where it happens? Relevant when it happens? Relevant what is John's job? Did his relatives die suddenly, or were they slowly dying for a prolonged time?

Did the black box's very presence mean the death of his relatives?

Was the box something they needed to keep them alive? SO the fact that he sees it means they don't have it and must be dead?

Does the size of the box matter? is it hand-held-sized? book-sized? large suitcase-sized? coffin-sized?
Was there an inscription on the box? any kind of lettering? lock? hinges? buttons?
Would the box be any other color if John's relatives were alive?
Was he looking for this box? or did he see it accidentally? or did someone bring it to him?

Was it some kind of computer? The monitor? The tower? Both?

Relevant where John saw the box? Are boxes of this type relatively common? If someone who was not John saw the box, would they also realize that John's relatives died?

Actually, you might have waited a little more, so that we can guess what the monitor was.
