Police: 5 Bodies Found In Modesto, California Home

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - Police have named a 30-year-old man a person-of-interest in the deaths of five people whose bodies were found in a California home on Saturday.

Detectives are looking for Martin Martinez, of Modesto, and are asking anyone with information on Martinez and his whereabouts to call them.

A Modesto police spokeswoman said officers responding to a request to conduct a welfare check discovered the bodies of three children and two adults Saturday afternoon.

Heather Graves said she didn't know the circumstances of their deaths, or their relationship to Martinez.

Graves said detectives were waiting to receive court approval to enter the home and process the crime scene.

This story corrects an earlier version that said detectives were processing the crime scene.
