Two adults and two children have been found dead in an house on New York’s Upper West Side in what police say could possibly be a murder-suicide.
The deceased are a person aged 41, a 40-year-old girl, a one-year-old boy and his three-year-old sibling. There had been conflicting media studies over whether or not the three-year-old was a lady or a boy.
NBC News stated the adults had suffered trauma wounds to their necks and that the children had sustained trauma accidents to their our bodies. CBS New York stated the 4 had suffered stab wounds.
A police spokesperson advised NBC: “I’m not sure how those injuries were sustained. That is part of an ongoing investigation. It was possibly a murder-suicide, but that’s not been definitively determined yet.”
CBS stated the person was the long-term tremendous on the constructing, at 328 West 86th St.
The man’s father had reportedly been attempting to contact him and, when he couldn’t get by by telephone, went to his house. Looking by the peephole he apparently then noticed his son’s spouse bleeding to loss of life and raised the alarm. The remainder of the household had been then found contained in the house.
