Three toddlers among dead in Australia mass killing

The bodies found in a Perth house are those of twin girls, aged two, another girl, aged three-and-a-half, and their mother and grandmother.

"The man now assisting police remains in custody", a police statement said, adding "no charges have been laid at this time".

At the time of the statement, the Homicide Squad and teams of detectives were on ground, accompanied by specialist forensic police.

Police have not said how the five died.

Mr Steele called the discovery "heartbreaking" and said the tragedy would send a ripple through the wider community.

Police confirmed they did not know how long the bodies had been inside the Bedford house.

POLICE have discovered up to five bodies, including those of children, following a "tragic incident" at a house in Western Australia (WA).

"There are no on-going concerns for public safety as a result of this incident".

Jon Kyl appointed to take John McCain's Senate seat
Jeff Flake, the other senator from Arizona , offered Kyl his blessing shortly after the news of his appointment made public. However, he had said anyone who lobbied for the appointment before the senator's death would be disqualified.

It is the third time this year that WA Police have been confronted by what appears to be a mass murder crime scene.

Steel added the investigation was still at a "very early stage" and officers were still working to determine the timeline of what happened, ABC News reported.

'They just seemed like a normal family, you would never imagine anything like this happening here, ' Mr D'Souza said.

"She was such a lovely person and such a go getter and hard worker", she said.

Homicide detectives are investigating the deaths and both Coode Street and adjoining Fort Street remained locked down last night as forensic officers examined the property.

"This is a tragic event that will have no doubt have an impact, not only on the family and friends of the deceased, but for the whole of the community, those first responders who were faced with attending a scene with multiple deceased people". He was questioned, but it's unclear if he's related to the victims and no charges have been laid yet.

Just two months ago, an Ellenbrook mother and her two children were also found dead inside their suburban home.
