(Newser) – Police in the upstate New York city of Troy say quadruple murder is suspected after a "horrible" find in a basement apartment. Troy Police Capt. Daniel DeWolf says the bodies of four people were found by a property manager around 1pm Tuesday. Police have not disclosed the identities of the victims or said what caused them to classify the deaths as homicides.

A neighbor tells the Times Union that the apartment was most recently home to a woman, her two children, ages 8 and 11, and her partner. It's "terrible. Sad—sad especially at this time of year," DeWolf says, per the New York Daily News. "We're going to do everything we can to look into this and get to the bottom of what happened here."
