Four found dead in Southern California house


Authorities say four people were found dead Tuesday in a home in suburban Mission Viejo.

Orange County Sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock said the bodies were found by deputies making a welfare check after a relative’s 911 call.

The dead people were only described as two males and two females, and the Sheriff’s Department was not releasing any information on how they may be related.

Hallock said there were no suspects at large, but he stopped short of saying it was a murder-suicide.

The coroner had yet to arrive several hours after the discovery and detectives, who were seeking a search warrant, remained inside.

The house is located in a development called Pacific Hills, a modern neighborhood of two-story, upscale homes on winding streets.
