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.
