The Orlando Police Department says three adults and two children have been found dead inside a Florida home in what appears to be a murder-suicide situation.
According to Click Orlando, the bodies were discovered inside a home off of Lake District Lane in the Lake Nona area of Orlando. Police responded to the home after someone called for a welfare check to the residence.
Inside, police found five people dead but their names have not yet been released, pending next of kin notification, according to OPD spokesperson Andrea Otero.
Neighbor Justin Rossilini told the Orlando Sentinel that the family moved into the home “about two months ago,” including a middle-aged couple, a 22-year-old son and two young girls, ages 6 and 7. Rossilini added that the family appeared to be “normal.”

“I think it’s like a worst nightmare truly,” Rossilini’s fiance, Heather Collins, told WESH. “I don’t even know what happened exactly. My heart goes out to the family. I can’t even begin to wrap my mind around any of this, especially if there were family involved.”
