WEST BROOKFIELD, Mass. (AP) – A woman and three young children were found dead Thursday in the upstairs bedroom of a Massachusetts home, according to a district attorney who called their deaths suspicious.
Police were called to the home in West Brookfield Thursday afternoon for a well-being check and found the bodies of a woman, a 2-year-old boy, a 5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl, said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. at a late night news conference.
“It is very early in the investigation and there are a lot of questions still to be answered,” Early said.
Investigators were treating the deaths as suspicious. No other information was immediately released.
“State Police Crime Scene Services are just getting into the house now along with forensic scientists from the State Police Crime Lab. We need to let them do their work,” the district attorney said.
