Mecca Family Farms, a ranch in Coombs, died after four of its six children, two women and one man, were taken from the ranch Sunday morning, the Coombs Police Department said.
The children, ages 7 and 12, were transported to the hospital by a private vehicle.
One of the children was pronounced dead at the scene.
The other two were transported by ambulance to the Rancho Memorial Medical Center.
The victims were identified as Darlene Tilton and her 2-year-old daughter, Emily.
They are the first family members to die in Coos County this year, according to Coos police Sgt. Dan Dannemann.
Emily is also the mother of one of the other children.
Coos Police said Emily was at the Ranchocombs Family Farm when her daughter, Darlanne, and two of her other children went missing around 2:40 a.m.
Danneman said Emily’s daughter, who was 7 years old at the time, was last seen with Emily and her two children in the driveway.
The child’s father went to the ranch with the couple, and they went to a friend’s house to pick up some food, but Emily left her and her children at the ranch, Dannemeann said.
She then went into the driveway, where she ran into the back of a truck.
DanniMannnnnnnnNNnnnn, he said, Emily went into a ditch.
The vehicle is owned by the Tilton family.
Coosi Police said Dannemaann did not have a description of the vehicle that was stolen.
Emily’s body was found by a woman driving in a silver Jeep Wrangler that was reported stolen from the Coos area earlier this week.
Police have yet to identify the vehicle, but Dannewomen said the Wrangler was stolen at least a year ago.
Darlannes death comes less than a month after a 4-year, 7-month-old boy was found dead on the same ranch.
Police said the 4-month old boy, who lived in the Coosa area, was found inside a barn with a shotgun and a handgun.
Authorities have not said what led to the boy’s death, but said they believe it is linked to the incident.
The case remains under investigation.
Coombs is about 15 miles north of Denver.
The Tiltons were from a family of three in the town of 5,600.
They grew up in Coosa, which is about 60 miles northeast of Denver, about 70 miles north-east of the town.
The family had four children: Darlen, 6, Emily, 5, and 6-year old Darlena, and 7-year oldest Emily.
The Coos couple lived at the family farm in the past, and Dannerell said the family was known for its large acreage.
The Rancho family, which owns the Cooans, has owned the Coosi Family Farm since 1927.
The farm was owned by Coos farmer and retired sheriff John Dannett.
