Horror: A Mum and her four children including baby ‘murdered’ on Christmas Day as cops arrest dad in Paris
A mother and her four young children, including a nine-month-old baby, were tragically discovered deceased on Christmas Day in an apartment near Paris. Authorities have apprehended the father, who was initially thought to be “on the run” as part of an ongoing investigation into the incident.
The family was found in the suburban town of Meaux, situated 25 miles from the French capital, on Monday evening. The youngest child was just nine months old, while the eldest was ten years old. The residence displayed no signs of forced entry, and the father was not present when the victims were discovered.
The father, known to local police, was reportedly on the move following the tragic events, but law enforcement has since taken him into custody. Local prosecutor Jean-Baptiste Bladier has confirmed the initiation of a murder inquiry after the bodies of the family members were found in their home.
As investigations are ongoing, the exact cause of their deaths remains unknown. Authorities are expected to provide more information later today.
