Katrina Miles Cockman and her four autistic kids aged 8 to 13 were found dead at their remote farmhouse in this morning while the two other adults were found dead outside the building, but they are yet to be identified.
Police found the bodies with gunshot wounds at the property owned by Katrina’s parents, Cynda Miles and Peter Miles, in Osmington. Katrina lived on the property and home-schooled her kids on the farm.
Western Australia state Police Commissioner Chris Dawson described the incident as a “significant tragedy”.
He said two firearms were found at the scene and confirmed that at least some of the victims suffered gunshot wounds. Police said they went to the property after getting a telephone call at about 5.15am this morning by a “male person” connected to the property.
Katrina has been described by friends as a devoted mum who worked tirelessly to provide for her daughter and three sons.
Speaking about Katrina, a friend told The Australian: “I always admired her for her strength. The kids were kind, gentle, smart and beautiful children.”
