ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police in an Albuquerque suburb say the bodies of a man and his young daughter were found in his home after the girl's mother tried to pick her up.
Rio Rancho police said Thursday that officers discovered the bodies late Wednesday after they were contacted by the girl's mother, who used to be married to the 56-year-old man.
Authorities said earlier that "several" people were found dead.
Police say the woman was trying to contact her ex-husband. Officers asked the man's adult son, who was in the house, to find his father.
The son initially said his father was sleeping but then returned and told officers that his father and sister were dead.
The Office of the Medical Investigator will determine the pair's cause of death. No identities were released.
