5 people are dead after what District Attorney Ashley Rich describes as the ‘worst murder scene’ in her 20-year career in the small town of Citronelle, Alabama on Saturday.
According to reports, 27-year-old Derrick Ryan Dearman of Leakesville, Mississippi surrendered himself to authorities, confessing to the crime.
3 male victims and 2 female victims lay dead in the home when police arrived, only to find 4-month-old baby alive inside. It is reported that one of the deceased females was approximately 5 months pregnant.
Capt. Paul Burch stated that it may take days to process the horrific crime scene, which police claim multiple instruments were used to carry out the heinous crime, including firearms and an ax.
Because one of the females was 5 months pregnant, Dearman may face an additional murder charge.
The F.B.I. is assisting in the investigation of what can only be described as a scene reminiscent of the Amityville Horror.
