SACO, Maine — State police say a family of five has been found dead in a Saco apartment.

Maine State Police told CBS 13 that a father, mother, and three children ages 12, 9 and 4 were found dead at Riverview Apartments, located at 27 Water St. Investigators say a co-worker who also lives in that complex went to check on the family and discovered a body around 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

The Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit is at the scene. They say the public is not at risk.

CBS 13 has a crew on the scene.



An earlier version of this report identified one of the children as age 13. The child is 12, according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.
