Police were at the scene of the crime that felt like it came right out of a horror movie.
Three decomposing bodies were found at a residence at Clarke Road, Penal Thursday afternoon.
And it appears to be the bodies of three adults who lived there, a man, his wife, and his brother.
Wazir Mohammed, 58, Shelly Ann Mohammed, 57, and Nazim Mohammed, 50 were discovered by a relative around 3.30 pm, police said.
It appears they were dead for days.
Also found in the house were two girls, aged eight months and four years old.
They appeared clean and well fed, and police say that a relative, who is now the prime suspect, may have cared for them.
Crime scene officers searched for evidence before they removed the bodies.
The children have been taken to hospital.
The house is hidden behind large trees and a galvanised roofing sheet fence. There are no homes nearby.
