ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Detectives are trying to determine what led to the killings of four people, including a child, in a Glasgow Village home.
The bodies of the three males and one female were found in the home in the 10400 block of Balmoral Drive in North County, just before midnight.
Police had been called there by family members who were concerned about the residents of the home. When officers went inside, they made the grisly discovery. It appears all four had been shot.
St. Louis County Police tweeted Friday afternoon that the case of a murder-suicide had been ruled out.
“Whether or not the individual responsible for this was located within home, we just don’t know that yet,” St. Louis County Police Officer Ben Granda had said.
The victims’ names have not yet been released — county police say they were a 56-year-old woman, two males 20 and 18 years old, and a 10-year-old boy.
A police spokesman says autopsies are underway, and identifications are tentative.
Anyone with any information on what may have led to the killings is urged to call St. Louis County Police or CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.
