Officials have confirmed that the horror unfolding at the lake is linked to a suicide at the Rolling Hills Estates Mobile Home Park earlier in the day.

The man who committed suicide in the trailer park is the father of the children and the husband of the missing woman.

All children are under five years old. Fletcher said, “A terrible set of facts seems to be developing. We do not know the certainty of all three children, but we have found one child. There is nothing more tragic than the loss of young children.’

Officials said the search and rescue team will continue to search all night.

The sister of the children’s father wrote on Facebook on the morning of the suicide: ‘Forever goodbye my dearest brother. Why do you make me so angry and sad at the same time. I’m so sorry I’m 20 minutes late and can’t help you.’

She added: “I drive so fast to help you and stop you, but I still failed. I’m sorry I let you down in this life and was too late to help you. You’re only alive if I were faster.’

The father is identified as Kos in several social media posts.

In a series of videos posted by family members, investigators reveal that the children’s father committed suicide in his bedroom while wearing pajamas.

One of those videos shows the bedroom being looted.

A relative suggests that the father owned more than one weapon and that he used the “bigger” one to take his own life.

Other videos show large members of the Hmong community around the lake staying close to police as the search continues well into the night.

The Twin Cities area is home to the largest concentration of Hmong people in the United States, with more than 66,000 calling the area home.
