Five Bodies Found in Trailer

Investigators still on scene investigating.  It is reported that there was a custody hearing scheduled for court and none of the parties have been heard from.

A brother of one of the victims, Omar Colon Matias, told the Associated Press his sister Evelyn, her husband, their two children, ages 9 and 11, were living in the trailer with another woman.

The trailer is located along a dirt road in a wooded remote area of the Eastern Shore near the Maryland line. It's among a handful of trailers in the area.
