Father, daughters found dead at home

A 46-year-old man and his two daughters aged three and seven have been found dead at their home in Almere, according to media reports on Monday.

Police were alerted by the man’s ex-wife who became concerned when she went to pick up her daughters on Sunday afternoon that the curtains were still drawn.
Police sources say it is likely the man killed his children and then committed suicide.
It is the second so-called family drama in the Netherlands within a month. Four people were found dead in a house in Zwijndrecht at the end of May.
