Ottawa - A woman and three children under the age of nine were found dead along with their alleged killer Wednesday in an apparent murder-suicide in Canada's western plains.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police made the horrific discovery in the early morning at a trailer park in Tisdale, Saskatchewan as they checked on the woman at the request of a relative who feared the worst after not hearing from her the previous day.

"The complainant advised this was not typical behaviour," RCMP spokesperson Mandy Maier told a nationally-televised press conference.
An investigation led to another residence in Prince Albert, 135km to the west, where the body of a male suspect in the murders was found.
A six-month-old infant who had been taken from the Tisdale residence was with the deceased, but was unharmed, Maier said.
