Police in Brazil were looking for a man suspected of murdering his wife, three young children, his mother and his sister on Wednesday.

Two of the family’s cars were later found in the states of Goias and Minas Gerais, with the charred remains of six people, including three children.

On Wednesday afternoon, investigators reported the discovery of a seventh body in a house in the Planaltina area of ​​the Federal District, where some of the victims were believed to have been held captive, civil police said.

Police said on Tuesday they had arrested three men on suspicion of involvement in the crime, which had the ultimate goal of “stealing valuables from the victims”.

The men, who reportedly received a payment of 100,000 reais (about $19,000), told investigators that the children’s father and grandfather had actively participated in the crime and had fled.
