UPDATE: 5 Found Dead in Orange County Home

Five members of an Orange County family were found dead in a home over the weekend.

Authorities indicated it may have been a murder-suicide that took place at the gated Sea Point Estates neighborhood, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Two handguns were reportedly discovered in the home, which sits on Campanilla Street.

On Tuesday, authorities identified the dead as Manas Ucar, 58; his wife, Margrit Ucar, 48; their 21-year-old twin daughters, Grace and Margo; and Fransuhi Kesisoglu, the wife's mother.

The bodies were reportedly so badly decomposed that fingerprint experts were called in to help identify the deceased.

Police and family members checked on the house after not hearing from the family for a couple of weeks. Authorities said the family may have been dead for two weeks or more.
