  • Detectives and homicide squad are currently at the house in Coode Street in Bedford in Perth's north east

Western Australia police told AFP that the "five people killed were twin two-year-old girls, a three and a half-year-old girl, their mother and grandmother".

Mr Harvey is understood to have lived in the Coode Street home with the victims, Mara Harvey, Beverly Quinn, and toddlers Charlotte, Alice and Beatrix.

A man believed to be in his 20s who went to a regional WA police station on Sunday morning remains in custody but "no charges have been laid at this time", a police spokesman said.

He was due to appear in court via video link later Monday.

"Our heart goes out to the family and friends of all involved and also to the first responders who had to witness that disgusting situation", he said.

"This is a tragic event and it will no doubt have an impact not only the family and friends of the deceased but for the whole of the community, those first responders who are faced with attending a scene with multiple deceased people", West Australian police assistant commissioner Paul Steel said.

"I want everyone just to hug their kids, hug their family ... it's very upsetting".

Forensic police officers were confronted with an horrific scene.

"There are no ongoing concerns for public safety as a result of this incident", they said.

A neighbour, who only wanted to be known as Alfie, said police arrived at the home on Sunday banging on back doors and jumping fences.

According to a neighbor, when he returned from a vacation he found his street lacked the usual boisterousness of young children playing.

"We had some friends staying here who have also mentioned that they didn't see or hear anybody next door for the week that we were away".

"It does send a ripple through the community of Western Australia".

"So [when they got together] it was like "yay, now she gets to start a family".

Neighbour Vagner de Souza said he regularly saw a family outside the house where the bodies were found.

Seven members of the same family - including four young children - were found dead on a rural property.
