WEST BROOKFIELD, Mass. - A diesel fuel can is missing from the home where a mother and three children were found dead last week and police said it could be the key to finding the person or people responsible for their deaths.
Sara Bermudez and her three children, Madison, James and Michael, were found dead in their home last week, victims of homicide police believe.
A source told Boston 25 News there is evidence of burning on the bodies, and now state police have said they're trying to locate a yellow can used to store diesel fuel that is missing from the home.
Police said the can may have been taken from the home and discarded.
Investigators are also seeking surveillance footage from anyone in the area of the home last week.
A family member told Boston 25 News the bodies were discovered when Sara's husband, who is the father of the children, called another family member from California when he could not get in contact with anyone at the home.
If you have any information, you are asked to contact Massachusetts State Police Dispatch Center at 508-867-1170.
