A mother in Japan is under investigation for murder after her four children, including a girl as young as three, were found dead at home, Japanese police said Monday.
Local media reported the victims were killed by their mother before she tried to take her own life.
A 10-year-old boy, two six-year-old girls, and a three-year-old girl were found dead early Monday, according to police in the southern Japanese prefecture of Fukuoka.
“Their father found them dead and reported it to police,” a police spokesman told AFP, without providing further details.
Police are questioning the children’s 41-year-old mother as a suspect in a possible murder-suicide attempt, according to Jiji Press and public broadcaster NHK.
The mother was said to confessed to police she had killed the children.
Police reportedly told media that at least one child had a mark indicating strangulation.
