HERNDON, Va. -- Police in Virginia say they are investigating what appears to be a triple homicide in Fairfax County.

The Washington Post reports that police were called to a home in Herndon around 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

They said they found the bodies of two juveniles and an adult who were all part of the same family.

Herndon Police Chief Maggie A. DeBoard said at a news conference that the killings appear to be linked to a man who killed himself on Saturday morning.

She said the man had a personal relationship with the adult victim.

He made statements before his death that led to police to the home where the three family members were found dead.
