CELEBRATION, Fla. (AP) - Four bodies were found inside a central Florida home and sheriff’s officials said they have one person in custody.

Osceola County Sheriff’s officials released few details about the investigation Monday.

“All parties involved with this investigation are accounted for,” Sheriff Russ Gibson said during a brief news conference. He didn’t answer reporters’ questions about the case.

Deputies were called to the home in Celebration, which is in the shadows of Walt Disney World. The bodies were found inside the home, but sheriff’s investigators haven’t said how they were killed or what charges the person in custody would face.

The identities of the dead won’t be released until the medical examiner conducts autopsies, said sheriff’s spokesman Jacob Ruiz.



Investigators had much of the block cordoned off with yellow crime tape Monday afternoon.

Neighbor Marcelo Rodriguez told the Orlando Sentinel he saw deputies at the two story home earlier Monday yelling for residents to open the front door. He said he then saw a man who lives there in handcuffs outside the home. Rodriguez said the man lived at the home with his family.

“We are in shock,” Rodriguez said. “It’s terrible.”
