    MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — Five people were found dead in a California home after someone called authorities to check on the people inside, police said Saturday.

    Officers responding to a request to conduct a welfare check on the home, in a residential neighborhood in Modesto, discovered the bodies in the afternoon, police spokeswoman Heather Graves said.

    She had no immediate information on the victims and circumstances of the deaths.

    Detectives were processing the crime scene.

    Modesto is located in the state's Central Valley.

    How very sad. What on earth brings someone to do something so unthinkable? I'll never understand. I did some searching of facebook and found a father and son in Modesto with this name. It may or may not be the family, but looking at the pics breaks my heart.

    UPDATE, 6:25 a.m.: A man described as a “person of interest” related to the discovery of five bodies at a northeast Modesto home Saturday was located by San Jose police early Sunday morning, authorities said.


    A Tweet sent out by Modesto police at about 2:06 a.m. read “Martin Martinez has been located by “@SanJose PD. The investigation is ongoing. No further details available.”

    There was no information where the 30-year-old Martinez was located or if he was being detained, in custody or what his connection to the case is.


    Attempts to reach Modesto police this morning for further details have been unsuccessful.


    We will have more on this story later today.

    Good work by LE in apprehending him so quickly. I am very curious what Martinez's connection is to the deceased. Only a monster can murder children.

    :(

    MOO

    Probably didn't want to pay child support. What an evil monster he is to kill innocent children.

    :furious:

    Child support or child custody or visitation, in my opinion. It could be jealousy, however, my instinct is he wanted to be free of the child and her mother. Others possibly were just "there" and had to be killed also? Just my thoughts as it's impossible for me to get inside the mind of such evil.
