An adult and child have been found dead at a property in South Wales, police said.
Officers were called to an address in Church Street in Troedyrhiw, Merthyr Tydfil, where the two bodies were found, South Wales Police said.
The area has been cordoned off and house-to-house inquiries are under way.
Police have yet to confirm the age or sex of the two victims.
Borough councillor Gareth Lewis said he found out about the incident on Twitter, and added that it would be wrong to speculate on the nature of what had happened.
He said: "All we know is that a child and somebody else, perhaps a young adult, have lost their lives.
"It is a very close-knit community, the people are very nice and will help the police as much as possible with their inquiry.
"The information started to spread online, and it will have a big impact on this community and its people."
Troedyrhiw is part of an old coal mining area, which Mr Lewis described as a "typical, traditional Valleys community".
