The bodies of four people were found today in a Mission Viejo home in what investigators dubbed a murder-suicide.

Orange County Sheriff's Department officials were called about 9 a.m. to 25601 Pacific Hills Drive, Orange County sheriff's Lt. Jeff Hallock said. Investigators did not say how the victims died. Sheriff's officials said the bodies were those of two males and two females.

Investigators believe they know the identities of the victims, but are waiting for full confirmation before releasing their names, Hallock said.

A neighbor told KCAL9 that a family of four lived at the home, including a teenage girl and a son in his 20s.

At the end of the day... We have 4 people that are no longer with us! Please have some respect for that! They have loved ones and people that adored and cherished them. If your only comments come from a place of being mean spirited... Save it, think of how you would feel if this was your family! My prayers and blessings for their family and friends...

What is wrong with this generation of 'kids', is this the result of them getting everything they wanted when they were kids & being told how great they were, despite putting any effort into anything they do. I am afraid that this generation is so detached from real human relations due to being raised on computers and violent movies and video games. Is life a video game to them? Who is going to save them, as they are entering the work force with this, 'me' everything revolves around me & my feelings attitude, then pile the violent video games with that, then you got a reactionary kid who goes violent when he doesn't get his way? Really, what are we going to do?
