Authorities have identifed those found as Sindiver Grover, 52, Damanjit Kaur-Grover, 47, Gurtej Grover, 5, and Sartaj Grover, 12. All were found dead in their Johns Creek, Ga., apartment on Monday.

UPDATE: Autopsy verified that the family murdered the family. More on that story here

Police said one of Damanjit’s co-workers alerted authorities after she didn’t show up for work and described the apartment as a “complicated” crime scene, and they weren’t sure how the victims died.

“It’s  throughout the apartment. It’s a rather complicated crime scene as we go through it. We are going to be here for hours,” said Johns Creek police Chief Ed Densmore. It didn’t appear that any shots were fired, Densmore  said.

The Sikh families exhibit strong family ties.

“With the family values we have in India, with two small kids, I mean, nobody can hurt their own children,” said neighbor Bashir Farishda.
