Sad to report.

Bloomberg News reports that former ABN Amro Group NV Netherlands CEO Jan Peter Schmittmann, his wife and a daughter were found dead at their home Saturday after a possible 'family tragedy', Dutch police said.

'The bodies of a father and mother and their daughter were found at the property' in the town of Laren, 32 kilometers (20 miles) southeast of Amsterdam, Dutch police said in a statement on their website. Leonie Bosselaar, a police spokeswoman, said in a telephone call with Bloomberg News that the deceased were Schmittmann, 57, and two family members.

The police received a call around 10:30 a.m. local time from a family acquaintance who said something may be wrong at the property, according to the statement. Bosselaar declined to comment further. The police said the two deceased women were 57 and 22.

Reuters reports that a police spokeswoman said an investigation was underway but that all early clues pointed to a family drama having taken place. There was no indication that Schmittmann's business dealings had played any role in the tragedy.
