THE harrowing search for two missing kids and their mom is underway after the bodies of another child and their dad were found in a suspected “triple drowning.”
Ramsey County Sheriff’s diver and boats were searching Vadnais Lake for the family after one child was already reportedly pulled from the water.
The lake and regional park have been closed down during the search.
In a Facebook post, Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher said the incident may have been a possible triple homicide.
“Live on Patrol will be delayed tonight due to likely triple homicide in Lake Vadnais. More information to follow. Thanks for your understanding. Horrible facts developing.”
Fletcher later spoke at a press conference giving more information.
“A horrible set of facts appears to be developing. We do not know the certainty of all three children, but have recovered one child,” he said.
“We’re going to continue to look for the other two children well into the dark. There’s nothing more tragic than the loss of young children, all of which were apparently under the age of five.”
Photos posted on social media showed people crying at a roadblock set up by police.
A van from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office was also seen driving to the area.
The father of the children was found dead this morning in Maplewood, according to authorities. However, it’s unknown if these two incidents are connected.
