Police are investigating a “suspicious multiple death” after three bodies were found Friday afternoon at a home in the Washington D.C. suburb of McLean, Virginia.
Fairfax County police say officers were sent to the home at 12:34pm after a family member came to check on the residents and saw what appeared to be a body through a window.
Officer Megan Hawkins, a spokeswoman for the Fairfax County Police Department said they do not believe there is a threat to public safety and do not think it was a random act.
Hawkins told the media there is currently no one in custody in connection to the deaths.
