Four people are dead and a homicide investigation is underway in the remote town of Olney, where the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office discovered a grisly scene on Tuesday morning.

Deputies responded to a 911 call early Tuesday and found the bodies of a 3-year-old girl, an adult woman and an adult man inside a home. A fourth body was discovered near a vehicle outside the residence. Heino added that there is no ongoing threat to public safety.

The manner of death of all four people is still undetermined, Heino said. All four bodies have been sent to the Montana State Crime Lab for additional analysis.
