Citronelle, Alabama: 5 People, 1 Believed to Be Pregnant, Found Dead Inside Home

Five people were found dead inside an Alabama home Saturday, police said.


Mobile County Sheriff’s Capt. Paul Burch and District Attorney Ashley Rich described the scene in Citronelle as the worst they have ever seen because of the number of bodies that were found in the home.

“We have a horrible scene here,” Rich said.

According to AL.com, a 4-month-old baby was found alive inside the home, police said. One of the victims was believed to have been pregnant.

Police said a suspect was in custody, but the identity of the person wasn’t released. Burch said that multiple weapons were used in the attack and that the crime scene might take days to process.

Burch said that the suspect walked into the Greene County Sheriff’s Office and confessed to the crimes.

He said authorities were first notified of the killings when a woman walked into the Citronelle Police Department Saturday afternoon and said she had been kidnapped late Friday night or early Saturday morning and was able to get away from her kidnapper.

Police are still seeking a motive in the killings.

Burch said he was unsure when the killings took place or if they are all of the same family.

Authorities are still investigating the incident.
