On Monday police found the parents and their 13-year-old son dead in their home in Apples near Lausanne.

They believe the family had been dead for the last few days.

Prosecutors say they have found a letter written by the father which seems to outline he was suffering professional problems. He worked for a bio-pharmacy company in canton Neuchatel.

Press reports say there’s no evidence a firearm or knife was used on the mother or son. An autopsy is still going on for the father.

Neighbours say they heard nothing from the home and the alarm was only raised when the son missed school.
