Police in the eastern Finnish town of Varkaus have found three bodies in a private home in the Käpykangas neighbourhood. A man, woman and a eight-year-old child, were apparently all members of the same family. Police believe that the man shot and killed his wife and son before taking his own life.
North Savo Police initially declined to say much about the case, such as whether the victims died as the result of an accident or foul play. The incident is now being investigated as a double homicide.
The bodies were discovered around 6pm Monday after relatives expressed concern about not being able to contact members of the family.
Few details have been released of the ongoing investigation.
