Alexander and Jacqueline Berman death investigation update: Police continue searching for clues

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Crime scene tape is down in front of a home in the 200 block of Pershing Way but the investigation into the discovery of three bodies inside the residence continues.

West Palm Beach Police say a woman they still haven't identified, 16-year-old Alexander Berman and his sister 15-year-old Jacqueline Berman were all discovered dead Monday morning. They said it appears to be murder/suicide.

Police are conducting a routine investigation. They're looking for any past law enforcement calls to the home, but say nothing has stood out to them yet.

They're interviewing family members, looking for motives, and trying to find out what happened inside the home.

Before she died the woman sent an email to family members who told police, it raised concerns for safety.

Police officers say they have not directly seen the email, they've only heard about it from the children's father who discovered the bodies. 

Right now there are grief counselors at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts where the children attended class.

Students appeared to pray outside the school this morning.
