Two young children and a man were found dead inside a Polson home on Monday in what law officers said was a possible murder-suicide.

According to a Lake County Sheriff Don Bell, deputies were dispatched to a home outside of Polson at around 2:30 p.m. on March 16 for the report of suspicious activity. Upon their investigation, the bodies of one adult male, and two young children were discovered in the single-family home.

Bell said the incident is under investigation but an initial investigation indicates a murder-suicide.

Further details will be provided later to allow time for next of kin notification, Bell said. The bodies have been transported to the Montana State Crime Lab for autopsy.
