Police in Southern California responded to reports of child abuse, discovered the bodies of two women and a teenage girl inside a home Monday in one of the nation’s most affluent communities.

At a press conference, Sheriff Lt. Kenn Nelson said Deputies, who answered reports of a possible case of child abuse at a Rancho Santa Fe home in San Diego County around noon, peeked through a window and spotted the body of a woman, around noon on Monday.

Nelson said Deputies then forced their way through a side entrance of the home and discovered the bodies of another adult female and a teenage girl, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The Sheriff said the initial call about the possible child abuse was made by a friend of one of the victims and indicated that all three “had visible signs of Trauma,” but refused to say whether they were stabbed, beaten or shot.

“Any time you have a person who dies at the hands of another, it’s a tragic situation. Now you have three individuals inside this house, and one of them is a juvenile, Nelson said.

“It makes it that much worse than is anticipated. It’s burdensome for family and first responders who have to see this,” the Sheriff added,

The victims’ identities, two women described in their mid-40’s and the teen were not immediately made available. However, Nelson did reveal that one of the victims lived at the home,  Fox5 San Diego reported.

He said detectives were working to determine a motive for the killings and what relationship the victims had with each other.

Police officials stated they are not currently searching for suspects but refused to label the case a murder-suicide.

Rancho Santa Fe is a community located in the mountains east of Pacific beach towns, 25 miles north of San Diego.

The home sits nearby an upscale country club, near the center of the town, which is known for its luxurious homes, beautiful manicured lawns and sprawling horse meadows. Famous residents include Bill Gates, Janet Jackson and Jenny Craig.
