They were declared dead at the scene.

The investigation was turned over to provincial police.

Sûreté du Québec spokesperson, Ingrid Asselin, said all three bodies bore signs of violence.

Asselin said preliminary information points to an apparent  double murder followed by a suicide, but investigators are awaiting autopsy results to confirm cause of death.

The presumed suspect is a 76-year-old man.
