The bodies of three people found at the late John Lennon's former home in England on Tuesday are part of a murder investigation in which one suspect has been arrested.
The deaths appear to be "domestic related," said authorities in Liverpool, adding that they were still at the beginning stages of their investigation, per the Press Association.
Sky News said the 30-year-old man arrested in the case was taken to a hospital after falling ill.
Merseyside Police were called to the ground floor flat in Falkner Street, Toxteth, at about 7.30 p.m., said Sky News. The dead bodies included one woman and two children, said the Press Association.
Neighbors told Sky News the home was regularly visited by Beatles fans. The flat was owned by The Beatles manager Brian Epstein and Lennon had once lived there with his first wife Cynthia.
"This is where John and Cynthia, his first wife, spent their honeymoon and this is where he wrote the song 'Do You Want to Know a Secret?'" Beatles Fab Four taxi tour driver Jay Riley told tourists as they stopped in front of the home, according to The Telegraph.
"The reason he wrote the song is because this was Brian Epstein's secret apartment. Brian Epstein was gay and up until 1967 in England it was illegal to be gay. This is why it was called his secret apartment."
Mark David Chapman stalked and killed Lennon outside of his apartment building in New York City on Dec. 9, 1980, after Lennon stopped to give him an autograph, said the Daily Mail.
Neighbor Jeffrey Black said it was "very upsetting" to see that children were involved in the murder. Media reports did not give the age of the young victims.
"Two weeks ago I heard shouting and screaming and I came out on my veranda," Black told the Daily Mail. "I thought there was someone fighting on the stairs. A man …stood at the door on the pavement and there was a woman outside screaming."
