Five people found dead in Australian city of Perth

Five people found dead in Australian city of Perth

Western Australia assistant police commissioner Paul Steel said: "This is early and we've not yet fully examined the scene".

"The man now assisting police remains in custody", police said on Monday.

It is believed the man was known to the women and children, although police have not confirmed this.

Homicide detectives and specialist forensic police will on Monday continue to comb the Coode Street home for evidence and clues to what happened after the shocking discovery.

Maria Manfredini, who lives at the property behind where the incident occurred, said she was shocked by the tragedy.

Police say there are no on-going concerns for public safety as a result of this incident.

The man, reportedly aged in his 20s, provided information which led police to the home in Bedford.

At the home, they discovered the deceased bodies of up to five people, including children.

A distraught neighbour near the scene said she often saw children playing in the front yard of the house.




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

"It's horrid to think that in such a lovely area, that's calm and so quiet, that something so tragic has taken place", she said.

Police attended the home after a man presented to a regional station.

Mr Fairbrother said he understood the family may have been killed "sometime in the last week" but they had been overseas at the time.

'I can say there was at least one woman but I can't say more than that I'm afraid, ' he said at a press conference today.

Katrina Miles and her four children were found shot dead in their beds, and the body of her mother Cynda Miles was found in an adjoining property with gunshot wounds.

Just two months ago, an Ellenbrook mother and her two children were also found dead inside their suburban home.
