The bodies of two children and their mother have been found in a burnt-out car which went up in flames at a Perth park.
The trio’s remains were discovered in a horror scene at John Graham Reserve at Coogee in the city’s south at 11.45am on Monday.
A homicide investigation is underway after three bodies were found in a burned out car at a beachside car park in Perth.
“I’m very shocked,” another man told 7NEWS.
“I thought this car had caught on fire, I didn’t know there was a body or someone was in there.
“I saw really burning big flames and then suddenly came a big sound and flames became bigger also.”
Witness Lincoln Morton said he heard what sounded like gunshots at the popular family meeting spot.
“I was coming back from the beach and I heard what sounded like a couple of gunshots,” he told The West Australian.
“When I was coming back from the beach that’s when I heard the first couple. I got to my car and I heard a couple more.
“Then I saw the heat and embers from the fire on the other side of the bush.”
