      Accomack County deaths: Five people found in a trailer in Gargatha

      GARGATHA, Va. (AP) — Authorities investigating the deaths of five people found in a trailer on Virginia's Eastern Shore say the person responsible is among the dead.

      Accomack County Sheriff Todd Godwin said Friday the five were found dead Thursday after deputies responded to a call of an attempted suicide in Gargatha.

      Police are attempting to identify the victims. Their bodies were taken to the medical examiner's office in Norfolk.

      The trailer is located along a dirt road in a remote area of the Eastern Shore near the Maryland line. It's among a handful of trailers in the area.

      Godwin described the crime scene as the deadliest in the county in at least a decade.
