A family of four, including two children were found stabbed to death in their Upper West Side apartment, Manhattan, New York on Monday.

The two adults and two children died from stab wounds inside their home on the fourth floor of 328 West 86th Street.

Emergency services found the father, 41, mother, 40, and daughter, three, and son, one, dead at the apartment, Daily Mail reports.

According to the New York Post, police were investigating the case as a possible murder-suicide, quoting sources as saying.

The building superintendent, who is related to the mother, went to check on them because he hadn’t heard from them since Sunday morning. He called 911 after drilling out the lock of their apartment and seeing blood inside.
