KREX News Room
FALCON, Colo. (AP) - El Paso County authorities say two young children and a man identified as a suspect are dead after they were found stabbed at a residence in Falcon.
Sgt. Joe Roybal said Thursday that 1-year-old Scarlett Gallagher was found dead at the scene after someone went to the home and called 911 late Wednesday to report several people had been stabbed.
Roybal said 22-year-old Ethan Courrau and 3-year-old Ryan Willhite were taken to a hospital where they died.
Sheriff's officials say the children were siblings, and Courrau was associated with their family. KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs reports he had been dating their mother.
Courrau's mother, Beth Courrau, told The Gazette her son was bipolar and her family was ``heartbroken'' for the families affected by what unfolded.
