(Newser) – The mysterious Turkish-American family with three generations of members found dead in their tony San Clemente home last week were all dressed in black, ABC reports. The 21-year-old twin daughters lay side-by-side on a bed. Their parents, a retired professor and his wife, along with her elderly mother were also dead in the bedroom. Handguns were found next to the parents. Police believe a suicidal family member likely killed the others.

"No hoods, nothing ceremonious, just black clothing," said a police officer.
