Police Taking Cadaver Dogs to ‘House of Horrors,’ Testing Victims’ DNA

As the investigation into the Turpin family’s “House of Horrors” continues, detectives are facing the grim possibility that some of David and Louise’s children may not have survived. They are considering bringing cadaver dogs into the home to search for remains.

According to Crime Watch Daily, detectives are seriously considering bringing a highly trained team of cadaver dogs into the horrific crime scene in Perry, California. Investigators who have been into the house claim that it’s a complete mess, with urine and feces everywhere and chains and manacles attached much of the furniture.

Unfortunately, based on the status of the Turpins’ 13 children, investigators now have to consider the possibility that some might not have survived, and there might be more to recover inside the house.

As those 13 survivors recover, authorities may also ask for DNA tests to verify that they’re all related to David and Louise Turpin.

Still no bidders for the house where Molly Martens violently murdered her husband

An American estate agent has admitted having serious trouble selling the home where killer Molly Martens brutally murdered her Irish husband Jason Corbett.

The house, 160 Panther Creek Court in North Carolina, has been on the market for months, but speaking exclusively to Paul Healy from The Irish Daily Star, listing agent Vicky Fleming admitted the almost US$400,000 (€327,000) home may need a price drop.

“We have had several people look at the property but we haven’t had anyone take an interest yet.
“Absolutely I have no doubt what happened there has had an effect,” Vicky revealed.
“Obviously I’m not a judge or a jury but there are concerns because of some people’s religious preferences and there are people that simply the history of this home would be of a concern to.”

Asked if she was having difficulties selling the home, Vicky said she was. One person was even interested in buying it,

Execution-style triple murder led to peaceful arrest in Florida, police say – The Courier

Louisville police steered away Monday from revealing what investigators learned about what triggered a fatal shooting spree last Thursday in Pleasure Ridge Park that left three adults dead and two pre-schoolers without their parents.

Instead, they gave a shout out to help from two Florida county sheriff’s departments and the tracking technology OnStar that helped locate and capture suspect Christopher Olivio, 46, of Spring Hill, Florida, last Saturday night.

Police found brother and sister Mike Miles, 27, and Geneva Miles, 39, each dead from a gunshot wound to the head. Mike’s wife, Catherine Miles, 24, died from multiple gunshot wounds. The three were found Friday afternoon at a home in the 6400 block of Venango Drive after Catherine Miles’ worried relatives had alerted police after failing to reach her.
