(HILLSBORO, Ore.) - Hillsboro Police say officers were called out Friday at approximately 1:00 p.m. to The Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve on SW Hillsboro Highway, over a report of three bodies found deceased.

Lt. Michael Rouches says a hiker on a trail near Otter Marsh viewing area, discovered the bodies of two children; approximate ages 6 or 7 years old, and an adult male, approximately 35-40 years old.

"Based on evidence at the scene it appears that this is a murder/suicide and that the victims and perpetrator could have familial ties," Rouches said.

"This crime likely occurred sometime in the morning hours of May 29, 2009. The persons involved were victims of gunshots."

He says the case is currently under investigation by Hillsboro Police Detectives and the Jackson Bottom Preserve and viewing areas will remain closed until Saturday afternoon.

The victims in this case will not be identified pending notification of relatives and no further information regarding this case will be available at this time.
