Coroner: Six bodies found in Pennsylvania home Police talking to 'person of interest' in the case Thursday, April 13, 2006; Posted: 9:13 a.m. EDT (13:13 GMT) ; Authorities on Wednesday arrive at a home in Leola, Pennsylvania, where six bodies were found. LEOLA, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Police checking on a home in a tiny southeast Pennsylvania town discovered a gruesome scene: six bodies, some wrapped in sheets and blankets in the basement, and blood, bone fragments and a hammer upstairs, authorities said Thursday. Police in East Lampeter Township, just outside Lancaster, said they were speaking to a "person of interest" early Thursday and hoped to release more details later in the day. Authorities did not immediately say how the victims died except that one had an obvious head wound. Lancaster County Coroner G. Gary Kirchner said he had yet to identified the six victims but planned to start autopsies Thursday. Police initially reported discovering five bodies in the home after a friend of the homeowner called 911 Wednesday afternoon saying the owner had called concerned about his family. Jessie L. Wise, 60, the owner, was in New York and told the friend he was worried because he hadn't heard from his family since Friday, authorities said. The friend, John Sean Adams, 24, called police about 3 p.m. Wednesday and entered the home with East Lampeter Township police Officer Samuel Sanger. According to the affidavit, Adams went into the basement, stopped halfway down the steps and turned back and yelled, "They're all dead." Sanger discovered "at least four people lying on the basement floor clearly lifeless," the affidavit says. It wasn't immediately clear where the other two bodies were found. Leola, a town of about 750 residents in Lancaster County, is 45 miles southeast of Harrisburg.
