"Up To" Five People Including Children Found Dead In Perth Home

The bodies found in a Perth house are those of twin girls, aged two, another girl, aged three-and-a-half, and their mother and grandmother.

'Sadly at that location police have located the bodies of a number of deceased people including women and children, ' he said.

The discovery was made this morning at a home on Coode Street in the Perth suburb of Bedford.

He said a man aged in his 20s is in custody, assisting detectives with their inquiries.

"It is a tragic thing when incidents like this occur", he said.

Mass killings are rare in Australia, but this appears to be the third such family tragedy to hit Western Australia state in recent months.

"It's just horrific on every level".

"This is a tragic event and it will no doubt have an impact on not only the family and friends of the deceased, but on the whole of the community, those first responders who are faced with attending a scene with deceased people."

"It's taken us by complete shock", she said.

"They were a ideal family. this is a lovely neighbourhood, it's quiet", Alfie said.

It's believed the man was known to the victims, although police have not confirmed this.

Homicide detectives are investigating the deaths and both Coode Street and adjoining Fort Street remained locked down last night as forensic officers examined the property.

Locals said a young family lived at the house, with an older woman visiting regularly.

Police then went to the Bedford home where they discovered the bodies about midday.

"She was pretty unlucky in love before she met him", a friend told WA Today.

In July, a 19-year-old man was charged with the murders of two children and their mother in another Perth suburb, Ellenbrook.

No charges have been laid yet and it is unclear whether the man is related to the victims.

A grandfather shot dead his wife, daughter and her four children in murder-suicide in May.

Ms Cambos revealed to Perth Now that the family's father ran a lawnmowing and landscaping business and she had not seen his work ute outside the premises for some days.
