A Connecticut woman and her newborn triplets have been found dead at home after she gave birth there.

The Connecticut Post newspaper reported the woman's mother found her and the three baby boys on the floor when she returned Tuesday afternoon to the home in Shelton.

Frances Hope told The Associated Press she didn't know whether her 26-year-old daughter was aware she was pregnant.

Police said it appears no one in the family knew about the woman's pregnancy.

Emergency medical workers who were called to the home found the woman unresponsive. Officials wouldn't reveal her name. They said it appears her triplets were carried full term.

Investigators said the causes of the four deaths are unknown but there were no signs of foul play.
