THREE children and their father were found dead in a car from an apparent homicide in Oklahoma, police said.
A jogger tragically discovered the bodies near Northwest 111th Street and Treemont Lane in Oklahoma City on Saturday.
Police first responded to a wellness check call around 4:30 a.m., prompting police to search for the victims.
The caller told police the father made threats as he left the home with his children, KOCO 5 reported.
The original call was to the family home, but they were spotted hours later in another neighborhood.
Police were actively searching for the family when a jogger found the bodies in a car, officers said.
All three children were younger than seven years old, reported KOCO 5.
The cause of death is unclear, but authorities said the father killed the three children and then himself.
The mother had been informed of the tragedy, the police said.
“This is a tragic situation. Many emotions are at play,” said Oklahoma City Police Commissioner Michelle Henderson.
“So we always want to be aware of that and sympathetic to that and make sure nobody gets to know about it on TV or social media before we have a chance to speak to someone.”
