The bodies of six people, four of them children, have been found in a house in Denmark.
Police said they were found in the village of Ulstrup in central Denmark and are continuing their investigation this morning, The Local reported.
East Jutland Police claimed they received a tip off about a "suspicious situation" at the house. Autopsies will take place later today, in order to establish how the six died.
Police said: "We cannot yet say with certainty what happened in the house; the ongoing investigation and the result of the autopsies will help answer that. We are investigating the case as a homicide and we are working hard to establish details."
Despite the identity of the bodies not being released, the municipality of Favrskov has called in crisis teams to help at schools and care centres, as it is believed the children were enrolled in school and other institutions.
