— Officials have identified the four people found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in northern Virginia.

The Stafford County Sheriff's office identified the dead Friday as 35-year-old Lance Calvin Buckley; 30-year-old Amy Buckley; 5-year-old Claire Buckley; and 17-month-old Abigail Buckley. Lance Buckley and Amy Buckley were husband and wife.

The sheriff's office said in a statement that a man who identified himself as Lance Buckley called 911 Thursday morning and said he wanted to report three murders and a suicide.

The sheriff's office said that when deputies arrived at the home they found the four bodies in the lower level of the home. The Buckleys lived in a subdivision in the northwestern part of the county.

Sheriff's spokeswoman MC Morris Moncure said she could not provide further details.
