According to the Columbus Police Department, officers were called to the house after the man, whose name is still withheld, found the three bodies. Authorities say he had just returned home to the village of Upatoi, which is east of Columbus, from his job as a nurse.

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan told local media the three bodies were found in different rooms in the house and that the family members appeared to be killed in a "brutal" way.

Police say the bodies will be sent to Atlanta for an autopsy Wednesday. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
