crime scene tapeJOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia are investigating the slayings of two children and two adults as an apparent murder-suicide.

City spokeswoman Rosemary Taylor says authorities found the bodies of a man, woman and two children — believed to be 10 and 5 years old — in a Johns Creek apartment Monday morning.

It was unclear Monday evening how long the people had been dead. Their identities and causes of death were not immediately released.

Taylor said a co-worker of the slain woman called police and requested a welfare check when she did not show up for work.

Police chief Ed Densmore says authorities are investigating the slayings as a possible murder-suicide.
