Six bodies found at mass murder scene

EL MIRAGE, CA – In the secluded desert community of El Mirage, California, a chilling discovery was made on Tuesday evening. Six bodies were found under circumstances that are currently shrouded in uncertainty.

Deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, conducting a welfare check around 8:15 p.m., came upon a macabre scene on Highway 395, which runs between Lake Los Angeles and Adelanto. Five bodies were initially discovered, with a sixth found the following morning at the same location, as confirmed by the department’s spokesperson, Mara Rodriguez.

The area was swiftly designated as a crime scene and cordoned off, with white police vehicles marking the perimeter. Reports suggest the victims may have been shot, as images from the scene depicted a navy SUV riddled with bullet holes. Police markers were scattered around the vehicle, and a second vehicle was also found on site.

Despite the ongoing investigation, details about the victims, including their age and gender, remain undisclosed. The cause and manner of death are also yet to be determined. However, Rodriguez confirmed that the case is being treated as a homicide.

The remote desert location of the crime scene adds to the grim nature of the discovery. Rodriguez commented on the heartbreaking situation, stating, “No matter what the circumstances are, what we discover out there is going to be devastating.” No arrests have been reported at this time.

Onlookers reported seeing multiple bodies on the ground, surrounded by evidence markers and bullet casings. Some bodies appeared to have burn marks. A police helicopter was seen hovering over the crime scene.

Rodriguez expressed her shock at the scale of the tragedy, stating that she cannot remember a similar incident where so many people were found dead in the community. More updates are expected to be released.
