UPDATED AT 8:30 A.M.: Law enforcement officials in Plumas County, where Huntsman and Curiel were arrested Friday, said they initially found a 9-year-old girl who was emaciated and showed signs of torture beyond anything they had seen before.
“This has shaken my staff to the core,” Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood told the Plumas County News. "That little girl had been subjected to the most unspeakable measure of torture for an extended period of time.”
The newspaper reported that two older children, 12-year-old male and female twins, were found at a home where the suspects were staying with a friend, and have been placed in foster care.
Curiel told investigators where to find the two younger children after intensive questioning, according to the Plumas County News. Contrary to previous reports that the two were found Monday morning, the newspaper reported that the stoprage unit lock was broken Sunday night and the two bodies discovered.
They were identified as a 3-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy. Read the full story here.
