The family was found Monday after police were asked to check on them. The twins would have turned a year old on Nov. 26.
WBZ-TV has confirmed that Scott Jones worked as a paramedic.
WBZ spoke with Jones in 2001. He was the first paramedic to respond to the scene of the Edgewater Technology shooting in Wakefield, where seven people were killed.
A spokeswoman for Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said Tuesday that authorities are awaiting the results of autopsies by the chief medical examiner’s office before saying how the family died. She stressed that the killings were an isolated incident and said authorities are not looking for any suspects.
A relative said the couple was having marital problems.
In 2010, police officers responded to the couple’s home on Newland Road because Scott Jones had threatened to commit suicide. According to the police report, Jones was found in Saugus and taken to Mass. General Hospital for treatment.
