5 Dead Orange County Family Members Wore Black
Were the deaths of five members of the same Orange County family a murder-suicide?
Authorities on Wednesday released an interesting tidbit, noting that the five members of the Ucar family discovered in their home over the weekend were all wearing black.
The dead were identified as Manas Ucar, 58; his wife, Margrit, 48; their twin 21-year-old daughters, Margo (pictured on right) and Grace (pictured left), and the family's maternal grandmother, 72-year-old Fransuhi Kesisoglu.
The bodies were so badly decomposed that authorities were using fingerprint experts to help determine who the deceased were. Two family members broke into the home on Sunday after not hearing from the family for a couple of weeks.
Although two guns were found near two of the bodies, police have not said how the family members died.
