GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) – Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials say multiple bodies have been found inside a home in an unincorporated area of Gilbert, east of Phoenix.
There is no immediate word Tuesday on how many bodies or their ages or genders.

But sheriff’s spokeswoman Courtney Palma says they are being investigated as suspicious deaths at this time.

Aerial footage from television news helicopters show a sheriff’s Incident Command Center van at the scene along with a county medical examiner’s SUV.

Palma says deputies responded about 9 p.m. Monday to a home near Power and Chandler Heights roads.
