New Castle Police are at a home on what is being described as a triple homicide.

Police tell 21 News that the bodies of 31-year-old Lawrence Cannon, 31-year-old Nichole Pumphrey, and 10-year-old Amariah Emery were found at around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday in a home at the corner of West North Street and Robinson.

Police were first called to investigate a report of three people who were not breathing.

According to a police release, Emery is the daughter of Pumphrey. 

However, officials say four other children were removed from the home by Children Services. Police are not yet releasing details on those kids, but say they are ok at this time.
