A couple and their two young children were found dead in a house in Northeast Oklahoma in what police said was a triple murder and suicide.
Police Capt. Todd Insprenner said the mother of an adult man victim arrived at the home in the garden of a caravan at about 2:30 p.m. She found her son, grandchildren, and mother of the children dead.
He said she was expecting babysitting but was unable to reach anyone on the phone to confirm the plan.
Insprenner said he did not know if a weapon was found in the house. The newspaper stated that the bodies of the victims were not found in one room, but they were “all over the house.”
Einsenbrenner said that witnesses told the police that they heard a commotion at the victims’ home between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday, which he described as a loud noise.
Insprenner said the police did not believe there was any threat to the public.
Ensebrenner, who said he has worked for the police force for 30 years, said he could not remember committing a quadruple murder in Sand Springs, a suburb of Tulsa.
He said that a murder occurred in the same garden of the carriage house about 16 years ago.
