Seven found dead at Australian rural property

Katrina Miles, daughter of Cynda, lived on the property with her four children, ages 8 to 13. He added that two local police officers arrived at the property within 45 minutes of the triple zero call.

Seven people have been found dead with gunshot wounds at a property near the Australian tourist town of Margaret River, police said.

While there is no sense of comparison here to Port Arthur or mass shootings of that kind, those of us in this community have spent this past weekend trying to grasp what seemingly insurmountable difficulties can lead to this type of calamity for a farming family in rural Australia.

Mr Cockman said he would never forgot his children's personalities. "Police are not searching for any other suspect", Commissioner Dawson said.

"I've lost everything in my life." . "I think he's been thinking this through for a long time", Cockman said.

"I wish to strongly emphasise police do not believe any other person is involved with these crimes".

Police, including officers from specialist forensic and homicide units from Perth, will be on the scene for "up to five days".

Osmington is mostly rural, consisting of vineyards and farms, while nearby Margaret River is known for craft breweries, boutiques and surrounding wineries.

Police say they were alerted to the killings by a phone call from a man at the property early on Friday morning.

The newspaper also called for firearm prohibition orders that would "allow police to subject prohibited persons to warrantless searches and ban them from being in proximity to a gun".

All of the deceased, who are yet to be formally identified, suffered gunshot wounds but police will not say if all three weapons were discharged.

The WA premier was on Sunday questioned about "nasty comments" since made overseas, including from the United States, that question whether Australia still remains an example of "excellent" gun control after the mass shooting.

Cops are additionally investigating a cellphone name made to police at round 5am on the day of the taking pictures.

Haynes told 9 News that over the years, Cynda Miles had become a beloved member of the small community.

Police confirmed three guns located at the scene were registered to Peter, and that he was a suspect in the murder of his wife, his daughter and his four grandchildren.

"They were good people". But I don't want anyone to feel angry.

Margaret River-Augusta Shire president Pamela Townshend told The West Australian: "Everyone is totally shocked. I'm sad but I'll get through this". "How the hell Peter did that I still can't figure out, but if someone did it ... he did a good job, he did a really good job".
