That came after her mother, Maisah Larkin, 39, was found dead on her living room floor in Philadelphia hours earlier.

She suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the head, police said.

The two girls and a boy were then reported missing from the house.

Police attention was focused on the toddlers’ father, Stanley Baptiste.

The 37-year-old was found by police in a Lincoln Navigator.

Baptiste turned the gun on himself after being approached by officers.

The deaths are believed to be a murder suicide, with police saying the motive was “domestic”.

Sources told local outlets that the parents’ relationship involved domestic violence.

The children are now in the care of their grandmother.

Maisah’s neighbor Brenda Lovelace told ABC6: “From what she told me he was abusive.

“She was going to leave, but she didn’t go fast enough.

“I’m still in shock. When I heard what happened, I just broke down and cried.”
