Bedford murders: police reveal ages of victims

The bodies of the girls and women were discovered at the home in Bedford yesterday after a man, believed to be aged in his 20s, went to a regional Western Australia police station.

"The man now assisting police remains in custody".

It is not yet known if the victims were related.

Police said there are no ongoing safety concerns for the community.

As a result, police attended a home on Coode Street in Bedford today and made the grisly find.

Police also have not said how and when the women and children died.

"Depending on the size of that crime scene that will take a period of time, and it could be a number of days", Assistant Commissioner Metropolitan Region Paul Steel said.

"It is tragic not only for the family and the friends, it is also tragic for those first responders who are forced to attend such scenes".

Prolific US playwright Neil Simon dead at 91
He succumbed to complications from pneumonia over the weekend, passing away at a New York-Presbyterian hospital in Manhattan. Many of his plays were adapted into movies, and one, " The Odd Couple ", even became a popular television series.

Mr Steele called the discovery "heartbreaking" and said the tragedy would send a ripple through the wider community.

The man is in custody while homicide detectives try to piece together the timeline leading up to the deaths.

The tragedy comes less than two months after a mother and her two children were murdered in their home at Ellenbrook and nearly four months after seven family members were shot dead at a house at Margaret River.

Entire blocks around the crime scene at the corner of Coode and Fort streets are cordoned off and dozens of police officers are at the scene.

Maria Manfredini, who has lived in the area for more than 30 years, said it was tragic on every level.

"I have been to their house a couple of times, they have been to ours a couple of times...and yeah, you get to know them a little bit", he said.

The West Australian newspaper reported late last night that the victims included a mother, her three young children, and the grandmother of the children.

It comes months after another tragic mass death in Margaret River in May, which saw Katrina Miles, her four children Taye, 13, Rylan, 12, Ayre, 10, and 8-year-old Kayden and her parents Peter Miles, 61, and Cynda Miles, 58, all found dead at their home.
