A father screamed out in horror after coming home from work to find his two young daughters murdered. 

Police rushed to a home in Madeley, in northern Perth, after neighbours heard the father’s cries for help.

Officers then discovered the bodies of two children – one aged six and the other 10 years old. 

The mother was found injured three hours later at a Whitfords Beach carpark, 12km from their Bogdanich Way home. 

She was arrested and is currently under police guard in hospital until she is fit for questioning. 

After police were alerted at 6pm on Friday, officers rushed to a home in Madeley, in northern Perth, and discovered the bodies of children aged six and 10 years old

The circumstances leading to the deaths of the two children is not yet known.

 

Neighbour Gordana, who is also friend’s with the children’s grandfather, said the news was horrific.

‘He (the grandfather) told me his son came home from work to find his little girl dead on the floor. When he called police they told him not to touch her, but by that time he’d found the other little girl in the laundry,’ she told The West.

She said the family were Bosnian but had lived here for more than 20 years.

‘The mum is a nurse, she is often at work, and the dad is an engineer,’ Gordana said.  

 Another neighbour said the news had shocked the tight-knit community and she used to see the two girls jumping on the trampoline outside on her way home.

‘I didn’t know the parents, they just kept to themselves. They didn’t really interact with the other families,’ mother-of-three Geeta Hirani said.
    

She claimed the street was swarmed with police even earlier at 3pm, as she returned home from picking her children up from school.

According to WAtoday reports, neighbours called the police after hearing concerning screams coming from the house.
