Hours after her husband died by suicide, a Minnesota woman drowned her three children in a lake before taking her own life..
On Friday morning at approximately 10:30 a.m., deputies from the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office along with officers from the Maplewood Police Department responded to a trailer park for a possible suicide.
a press release, accessed by People, indicates that upon arrival at the Rolling Hills Estates mobile home park, authorities found the remains of Kos Lee. His age and cause of death have not been revealed.
More than five hours later, around 4:00 p.m., officials “responded to a welfare check in the Vadnais-Sucker Lake Regional Park area” in Vadnais Heights, according to the news release.
“A wellness check was requested on an adult female with three young children,” it continues. “When deputies and officers arrived on scene, they found a vehicle and other items, including children’s shoes.”
The park was closed and a search was launched for tattoo artist Molly Cheng.23 years old, and their children.
Around 7:30 pm on Friday, the body of a child was recovered from the lake. Just before midnight, another child was found dead in the lake.
Cheng’s body and the remains of his daughter were found on Saturday morning around 11 a.m.
“The three referenced children are believed to be under the age of five or six,” the press release published to date states.
Police will report how Cheng died after an investigation, although there is talk of a possible triple murder-suicide at the lake. Detectives have yet to establish a motive for the deaths.
