PINE VALLEY, Calif. -- Riverside County sheriff's deputies responded to a
home on Devils Ladder Road in the small town of Pine Meadow Tuesday
morning and found six people dead in their home. Two sources confirmed to
NBC4 that the victims are a Riverside County district attorney's
investigator and family members. Earlier, reports identified the victims
as a deputy district attorney's family.

The Riverside County sheriff's office received a 911 call from the house
at about 4:30 a.m. and sent two patrol units from the department's Hemet
station, authorities said. The deputies found the victims when they
arrived at the home. The Associated Press reported that the dispatcher
who took the 911 call may have heard gunshots before the line went dead.
At a noon news conference, the sheriff of Riverside County said nobody
spoke to the 911 dispatcher at the time of the call. He said all five
victims had head trauma, but he would not say if the head trauma was
caused by gunfire.
NBC4's Mary Parks said the victims were the district attorney's
investigator, his mother, his wife and three children. Police told NBC4
that the suspected killer is the brother of one of the victims. Parks
said a domestic dispute apparently led to the murders, and the killings
apparently were not related to district attorney's investigator's job.
NBC4's Doug Kriegel reported at 11:50 a.m. that the suspect was not in
custody.
The district attorney's investigator was a former police officer in
Cathedral City, in the Palm Springs area, and had worked with the
Riverside County district attorney's office in Indio for nine years,
according to NBC4.
The ranch home where the bodies were found is located in about 100 miles
southeast of Los Angeles, in an area known as Garner Valley in Riverside
County. It's located off Highway 74, south of Hemet and east of Temecula.

Justin Jaeger in News Chopper 4 said the neighborhood where the bodies
were found is intimate and secluded, with expansive homes.
