The six people, two of them children, who were found dead in a Gage Park home Thursday died of “blunt trauma, ” said Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Eugene Roy, according to the Tribune.

Officials won’t provide more details until they receive autopsies.

Roy wouldn’t say exactly how the six died, and wouldn’t comment on whether they were stabbed. However, he did specify that they weren’t tied up or shot, according to the Sun-Times.

Officials also told reporters that no one ransacked the home where the bodies were found, and that the doors were locked from the inside.

"This is a complex investigation," Roy said. "We're working meticulously.”

The dead were previously reported to include one child, but actually included two children, boys ages 13 and 10.

Altogether, the deceased made up three generations of the same family. They have been identified by family and police as Noe Martinez and his wife, Rosaura Hernandez; their adult children, Noe Martinez Jr. and Herminia Martinez; and Alexis and Leonardo, Herminia’s two sons.
