The Nova Scotia RCMP’s Major Crimes Unit has taken over the  investigation to determine what led to the deaths of four people at a home in Upper Big Tracadie.  Guysborough RCMP arrived on the scene shortly after 6 last night where they discovered four bodies in the home.  Police say initial observations suggest that three females aged 52, 31 and 10 and a 33-year-old man died of apparent gunshot wounds. The Nova Scotia Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct autopsies to confirm the cause of death.  The man’s gunshot wounds appear to be self-inflicted.  There was no sign of forced entry.
Police says two firearms have been found, but a search on the scene is continuing.
