A woman (49) and her two children aged 11 and 14 have been found dead outside the city of Viborg in Denmark. That’s what the Central and West Jutland police write on Twitter.
– So far, there is no indication that there are other people than the deceased who have been involved, the police write.
The next of kin have been notified, the police write.
It was an acquaintance of the family who found the deceased and alerted the police, Midt- og Vestjyllands Politi writes in a press release on Sunday evening.
– Our preliminary investigation indicates that the woman has probably killed her two children and then the two children and then probably taken her own life, but we are still investigating in several directions, says Deputy Police Inspector Jim Hansen at the Central and West Jutland Police, who leads the investigation.
Just before 5pm on Sunday evening, the police reported that they had blocked off large sections of a road in the town of Vejrumbro.
They stated that they were to investigate what they referred to as a “suspicious relationship”.
– There is no danger to residents in the area, the police wrote.
At 19.13 the police announced that the three dead people had been found and that crime technicians were investigating the incident at the scene.
The police’s communications adviser Mette Quistgaard tells Dagbladet that the police are investigating the case broadly.
– We have both dogs and forensics technicians on site investigating the case. We will also have that tomorrow, she says to Dagbladet.
She further states that the police received a report about “suspicious deaths” in the house on Sunday afternoon and that as of now they cannot conclude what has happened in the case.
The police state that on Monday we will take the initiative for a meeting for the residents of Vejrumbro.
– This is naturally a case that deeply affects and shakes a small local community, says deputy police inspector Christian Toftemark in the press release.
