Triple homicide reported
An adult woman and her two children found dead in a southwest valley home were stabbed, Metro Police say.
Homicide detectives arrived at the house in the 10000 block of Wolf Pack Lane after receiving a call shortly after 1:30 p.m. Friday.
Lt. Ray Steiber, who oversees Metro's homicide division, said police were called to the residence to investigate suspicious circumstances after a family member reported no one was picking up the phone at the residence.
Police arrived to find the woman and two children dead from what appeared to be multiple stab wounds.
On Saturday, police said the initial investigation indicates that the mother attacked the children inside the house, then turned the knife on herself.
“It’s still a very dynamic scene, and we are encouraging people to stay out of the area,” said Officer Bill Cassell, Metro spokesman.
No further details were available.
