LANCASTER, Calif. (KABC) — A father has been arrested on suspicion of murder after two of his children, a 12-year-boy and 13-year-old girl, were found decapitated at a Lancaster home, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Firefighters arrived at the single-story house in the 45000 block of Century Circle shortly after 7:30 a.m. Friday and discovered the bodies, according to LASD.
The firefighters had initially responded to a report of a possible gas leak there. Sheriff’s deputies were immediately summoned to the scene, where homicide detectives “learned that the deceased male and female both appeared to be suffering from lacerations and stab wounds,” a news release said.
