Murder-suicide: Police were called to a Stittsville house at 25 Granite Ridge Dr. after a man returned home and discovered the bodies of his wife and two children in the basement. The confirmed victims are 40-year-old Alison Easton and her two children, six-year-old Katie (Katheryn) Corchis and 10-year-old Alex (Jon Alexander) Corchis. Police sources said two notes were left inside the home — one for the father and another for Ottawa police. Investigators believe Easton killed her children and then herself. No charges are expected to be laid. The murder weapon was a knife.
