The children that were recovered from the lake, two boys, and a girl, were all under the age of 5.


The chain of events began on Friday morning when the body of a man, believed to be their father, was discovered in a mobile home in the town of Maplewood, near Minneapolis. Authorities determined that the woman had left with the children, and a search began. Joe Steiner, a lieutenant with Maplewood Police, said that the woman's car was found near Vadnais Lake at approximately 4pm on Friday. The shoes belonging to the children were also found on the shore.



The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office confirmed that the body of the first child was recovered from the lake at around 7:30pm on Friday.


The body of the second child was found just after midnight and the third child and the mother were discovered around 10:30am Saturday - the bodies have been taken to a medical examiner.


Ramsey County Sherrif Bob Fletcher said that the deaths were being treated as homicides, adding, "there's nothing more tragic than the loss of young children."
