A mother and her three young children were found dead at their home in Melbourne, Australia on Thursday, triggering an investigation by homicide detectives.
Officers from Victoria Police were called to the property in Tullamarine, in the city’s south-western suburbs, at about 12:30PM. There they discovered the bodies of the 42-year-old woman and her three children: a three-year-old boy and two girls aged five and seven.
A 48-year-old man, thought to be the children’s father, was escorted from the property and assessed by paramedics before being taken away in a police car. He is assisting police with their enquiries.
