A mother found her two children and ex-husband dead in an apparent homicide at an apartment in Southern California, police said Thursday.
Ventura County sheriff's Detective Eric Buschow said a woman discovered the bodies of her 12-year-old son, her 6-year-old daughter and her ex-husband in an apartment in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday night.
“It’s a really disturbing scene,” Buschow told the Ventura County Star. “We have a lot of work to do.”
The newspaper quoted neighbors as saying the male victim was a devoted father.
“I am absolutely blown away,” local resident Jason White added. “This is a very relaxed, very quiet, family-oriented, high-rent district. It’s an extremely safe area."
