A Lady and three young children, ranging in age from five to twelve years old, were discovered tragically dead at a residence in the state of Connecticut.
Yesterday evening, a guy who was described by police as being “distraught” discovered the deceased children at the residence located on Whaley Street in Danbury. The news was verified by the police.
Officers arrived on the site and discovered the death of a lady inside a shed in the rear when they searched the structure.
The events that led to the deaths of all four are not yet completely understood.
According to NBC 4’s report, the police have said that they have not taken any suspects into custody and that they are not seeking anybody in connection with the unfortunate occurrence.
It is thought that the three youngsters, who ranged in age from five to twelve years old, are connected to one another.
Chief of Police Patrick Ridenhour said: ‘At approximately 6:33 pm officers responded to a well-being check call at 10 Whaley St. The caller was distraught and crying.
“Upon arrival officers went inside the single-family residence and discovered three deceased persons, all juveniles.
“While conducting a further check of the premises they found a deceased female in a shed in the backyard.
“We are not releasing the names at this time and we ask that you respect the privacy of the family and the neighbors at this time.
“This is an active investigation by our General Investigations Division and Special Victims Unit.
“We believe this is an isolated incident and there is no danger to the public.”
It has been verified by Ridenhour that the event that occurred in Danbury, which is located around 50 miles northeast of New York City, seems to be isolated, and there is no higher risk to the general population as a result.
He also told NBC Connecticut: ‘We’re not going to leave any stone unturned. I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves.
‘We have a pretty good idea of what happened but we just don’t want to confirm that at this point.
‘It’s an extremely difficult time for many of our officers, especially those who had to go inside.’
According to one neighbor named Tom Neville, who is one of the 86,000 people who live in the city of Danbury, the occurrence has shaken up the inhabitants in what is often a tranquil region.
He told the local paper: ‘At 5 o’clock tonight, I was watering my flowers and nothing. Nothing looked like suspicious was going on or anything.’
This comes only a few short weeks after the alleged murder of a Connecticut lady named Shelby Dodson by her husband, George Dodson, in the course of a domestic violence incident.
Dodson is suspected of stabbing and beating his wife to death before setting fire to their home in New London while she and their infant baby were still inside. The youngster was just one-year-old at the time.
Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence CEO, Meghan Stanlon, previously told Fox 61: ‘It was definitely violent which we’ve seen across the state over the last two years.
‘The violence in terms of the homicides have increased so that is a thing that is consistent in this case. We have seen children under six. That’s been a trend as well.’
