The victims of the triple homicide discovered at 7:15am yesterday in Totara Heights Manukau City were beaten about the head and stabbed.
Detective Sergeant Neil Grimstone says postmortem examinations carried out on the bodies of Angela Han, a 33 year old Korean woman, her five year old son Nicholas, and two year old daughter Christina, showed heavy head injuries and lacerations about the neck and stab wounds had likely caused the deaths.
Police forensic experts had removed a number of weapons from the house for further inspection. They believe at least two weapons were involved.
The bodies were discovered in the bedroom of the Manukau house yesterday morning.
