Sponsored by:

Police have found nine bodies inside a Fresno home and authorities say the man arrested in the killings is believed to be the father of all of the victims.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says dead include a woman in her 20s, a 17-year-old girls and seven children, ages one to eight. Dyer says the bodies were found stacked in a pile of clothes after police responded to a call about a custody dispute Friday afternoon.

Dyer says police arrested 57-year-old Marcus Wesson after he walked out of the house, covered in what appeared to be blood. Dyer says police have determined a cause of death for the victims, but were not immediately releasing it.

Dyer says about ten caskets were stacked along a wall inside the single story home, but it´s known why they were there.
