Father 'murders mother and three young children and then burns house down before killing himself 75 miles away'

Police say the bodies of the woman and children were discovered early Tuesday in a Salem,Oregon home, while the father was found dead in a vehicle about 75 miles away in Cottage Grove.

The victims weren't immediately identified, though police said that they died of ‘homicidal violence,’ not the fire.

Police say they don't have other details about the parents' relationship, though they named the woman’s husband as a person of interest, KGW in Salem reported.

The man's body was found at Cottage Grove, 75 miles south of Salem along Interstate 5.
