The girls are ages 20 months and 5 years. They emerged unscathed Friday morning from an upstate New York motel where police later found their father, Anthony Trapp, dead on a bed in his room of an apparent suicide.

New Jersey authorities found the body of Trapp’s ex-wife, Heather Trapp, in his home in Old Bridge on Thursday.

The Middlesex County medical examiner’s office has determined Heather Trapp was stabbed multiple times and classifies her death as a homicide.

Anthony Trapp’s cause of death hasn’t been released.
