Ottawa - A woman and three children under the age of nine were found dead along with their alleged killer Wednesday in an apparent murder-suicide in Canada's western plains.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police made the horrific discovery in the early morning at a trailer park in Tisdale, Saskatchewan as they checked on the woman at the request of a relative who feared the worst after not hearing from her the previous day.

"The complainant advised this was not typical behaviour," RCMP spokesperson Mandy Maier told a nationally-televised press conference.
