The sheriff's department in St. Lucie County, FL, says four
people who are in custody on federal drug charges are also "persons of
interest" in connection with four family members who were found shot to death
beside the Florida Turnpike.
At a press conference Friday morning, Oct. 27, officials
said the killing of Jose and Yessica Escobedo and their two sons was
deliberate, and may have been motivated by drugs, money, or both.
Authorities said they are also looking for several other
people, including Jose Escobedo's brother, who's thought to have ties to a Gulf Coast drug cartel.
