Prosecutor: Man found dead in woods; woman, 2 kids found dead in home
Authorities say a man was found dead in the woods in an apparent suicide shortly before the bodies of a woman and two small children were found dead in a Salem County home.
The Salem County Prosecutor's Office says a passerby reported the male's body in a wooded area off Sportsman Road in Carneys Point on Wednesday morning. Police checked his address and asked Penns Grove police to check on the well-being of people at an address where the other bodies were found.
The names of the deceased weren't released pending notification of next of kin. It was unclear how the four people were related.
Local and state police are investigating along with the county prosecutors.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
