Police have launched a high-level probe into this morning’s quadruple killing in Crawle, in Riversdale, St. Catherine.

The deceased have been identified as: Kerrian Higgins-McGrath, Dorothy Higgins, Dianne Johnson, and a man known only as ‘Kevin’.

Five children who were in the home were not harmed.
