The three children reportedly died by strangulation, and the mother’s suspected cause of death is asphyxia by hanging.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Farmington, Connecticut, was scheduled to perform an autopsy on Thursday, July 28, according to police.
Loja and her three children allegedly lived together in the home with two other adults, who were not at the scene when police entered the residence.
Danbury Mayor Dean Esposito said in a statement, "A truly horrible event occurred in our city yesterday and we mourn the tragic loss of life. In the coming days, mental health and counseling services will be provided through collaboration with the Danbury Public Schools and the City of Danbury. Our community grieves for the innocent lives taken from us. We will get through this together."
Loja’s family told WFSB that Loja ran a home day care.
