Gruesome find in a lake in the USA – three children and their mother are found dead. The police are assuming a homicide.

Police in the United States have discovered the bodies of three children in a lake in the state of Minnesota. The mother’s body was also recovered from the lake, said Mike Martin of the local police on Saturday at a press conference. “We are investigating this case because of a homicide.” The dead children are two boys and one girl. Martin did not give any information about his age.

The discovery of a male body Friday morning in the nearby town of Maplewood is linked to the case, Martin said. However, he did not comment on the details. US media reported that the dead man was the father of the children. Investigators did not confirm this when asked.

The police had searched for the mother and children after finding the dead man. According to investigators, the mother’s cell phone data led investigators to the lake. “We will not discuss the ongoing investigation or the cause of death here,” said Martin of the police.
