Irvine authorities are investigating a possible murder-suicide after the remains of three people were found inside a home Wednesday morning.
Officers were called at 10:30 a.m. to conduct a wellness check at 58 Riverboat, which is on the north end of town near North Tustin, according to the Irvine Police Department.
“Extended family members of the residents of the home have reported to Canadian authorities that they have not been able to reach the residents for over a year and are concerned,” police said.
Canadian authorities have asked Irvine police to check on a father, mother and their adult son, who allegedly lived in the home, police said.
“Responding officers entered the house and discovered three badly decomposed bodies inside which appeared to be adults,” police said.
The home showed no signs of forced entry and there were “certain indications” that the deaths were related to a “domestic incident which culminated in a murder-suicide”, police said.
More information was not available Wednesday.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Det. Gavin Hudson at (949) 724-7168 or email him at email@example.com.
