Police called to a domestic disturbance found multiple murder victims in a home in a gated community in southern California. The victims included members of at least one family, though others may have been in the San Clemente home at the time of the shootings, AP reports. One body bag held a tiny corpse. The killer is also believed to be dead, according to investigators. Police are withholding further information until next of kin can be reached.
