  • Police are conducting a thorough and proper investigation to determine what events led to this matter

The five people found dead at a house in Perth's north-eastern suburbs were twin two-year-old girls, a three-and-a-half-year-old girl, their mother and grandmother, police have revealed.

Assistant Commissioner Metropolitan Region Paul Steel told reporters police arrived at the home about 12pm local time to find women and children among the dead.

"The man now assisting police remains in custody, no charges have been laid at this time".

Specialist forensic police are expected to continue a meticulous examination of the crime scene on Monday.

"Attending Police discovered the deceased bodies of up to five persons including children", the statement said.

A man in his 20s turned himself to a regional police station on Sunday, ahead of police going to the home where they discovered the bodies around midday.

Violent crime with multiple victims is rare in Australia but this was the second major incident in Western Australia this year.

It's believed the man was known to the women and children, although police have not confirmed this.

"I can assure people that the WA Police Force are conducting a thorough and proper investigation to determine what events led to this tragic matter".




It's yet to be determined how long the bodies had been there, he said.

"It is something you never would think would happen in this area", she said.

It has taken everyone by surprise, we are all in complete shock.

"It is tragic not only for the family and the friends, it is also tragic for those first responders who are forced to attend such scenes".

Homicide detectives are investigating the deaths and both Coode Street and adjoining Fort Street remained locked down last night as forensic officers examined the property. "It is safe, we have grown up all our lives and this is just so sad and horrific".

The home is still sealed off with police tape, and investigations are still ongoing.

In July, Kiwi mum Michelle Peterson, 48, and her children Bella, 15 and Rua, 8, were killed in the suburb of Ellenbrook.

The deaths of Katrina Miles, her parents Cynda and Peter Miles, who owned the property, and her four children has been described as Australia's worst mass shooting since the Port Arthur massacre.
