Police are investigating after three people were found dead at a home near Mallorytown on Friday morning.
Officers found the bodies at a home on County Road 5 in Front of Yonge Township, about 130 kilometres south of Ottawa.
The three people varied in age and police believe they are related, Leeds OPP said in a news release.
Police also said it’s believed to be an isolated incident with no threat to public safety. Neighbours said the people inside were believed to be in their 90s and 60s. A couple in their 90s and a man in his 60s were said to be found in the home following a wellness check call from family members to police Friday morning.
"It is very unnerving," said neighbour Carol Allman. "You live out in the country because you want quiet and no crime and so it would be nice to know there was no crime, that it was something natural causes, maybe carbon monoxide poisoning. I mean, it's sad, it's very tragic."
Post-mortem examinations are being conducted in Ottawa to determine the cause of death.
