several found dead in new jersey house

Gruesome. Three people were found dead in a New Jersey house last week, all of them stabbed multiple times, with their bodies decomposing after sitting in the house for about a week: Several Found Dead in New Jersey House.

The victims, who were not identified, included an older man and a woman, and a younger man, perhaps in his 20s. It's all very mysterious. No murder weapons was found, and the house didn't appear to have been ransacked. According to the Bergen County prosecutor, "We do not believe this to be a random homicide."

The bodies were discovered on Friday afternoon. The daughter of the older man, unable to reach her father, sent a relative to the house to investigate. The relative came in through an open back door, found a body, left and called the police.

While authorities have not identified the victims, property records indicate that the house was bought by Yoo Bok Kim in May 2007. Neighbors said they believed the residents were Korean. More news on this case as it develops...

UPDATE: A 32-year-old man was arrested Sunday in Los Angeles in connection with the three stabbing deaths: Man is arrested in L.A. after stabbing deaths of three in Tenafly.
