(Newser) – Several more bodies are in the ashes of a suburban Los Angeles home that was the scene of a Christmas Eve massacre, police tell the AP. Authorities would not say how many bodies there were; three people were already declared dead after a man dressed as Santa Claus opened fire during a holiday party.

"We have multiple bodies inside," the county coroner said. "They're extremely charred and burned." Earlier today, police found the body of Bruce Jeffrey Pardo, the only suspect, dead by his own hand at his brother's house.
