5 bodies were dressed in black

The bodies of five family members found in a home over the weekend were dressed in black, Orange County sheriff's officials said Wednesday.

But deputies do not believe the attire had anything to do with something unusual such as a cult, said Sheriff's Lt. Erin Giudice.

The badly decomposed bodies were identified through fingerprints as those of Manas Ucar, 58; his wife, Margrit, 49; their twin daughters, Grace and Margo, 21; and Margrit Ucar's mother, Fransuhi Kesisoglu, 72. Two handguns were found near the bodies, Giudice said.
