The children were Gregory, 8, and Molly, 10

Police at the scene would not say who they believe did the killing. The parents were in the midst of a divorce."At this point, it appears to be a murder-suicide," State Police Maj. Michael Kopy said at the scene about 9 p.m. He would not say how the people were killed but said the bodies were found all around the three-story house. Extensive forensic processing was under way, and the bodies were still inside Tuesday night.This morning, a sole state police SUV was posted outside the house and keeping a half-dozen television news satellite trucks and a group of reporters across the street. A porch light was on at the house, but no lights were on inside. There was no police tape around the property, the police car the only sign of Tuesday's tragedy. Along the street, every once in a while a light would go on in one the large single-family homes. Residents at two of the homes did not want to talk about the deaths this morning. A trooper went to the house Tuesday after state police received a request to check on the welfare of one of its occupants at 3:40 p.m. The trooper got into the house, quickly found two bodies and retreated, calling for backup. Police then found the other bodies. The house has been for sale about five months, according to real estate websites.The Lewisboro school district issued a statement Tuesday night, saying Gregory and Molly Friedlander were Lewisboro Elementary students. It said that all schools will operate on a regular schedule and that "the building crisis team at Lewisboro Elementary School and the district crisis team will provide support as needed."
