Heartbreaking news after the bodies of four children were found Monday in Georgia.

Now we’re told they are believed to be those of four missing Marion County, Florida children.  The discovery came not long after police found the body of their 32-year-old mother’s in Brantley County, Georgia.

According to police, Casei Jones’ family reported her as missing Saturday.  They hadn’t seen her in six weeks.

Now her husband, Michael Jones Jr., was identified as a “person of interest” in her disappearance.  He turned up Sunday in Brantley County, Georgia, after being involved in a crash.

He’s now much more than just a “person of interest”.  Police said Casei Jones’ body was found in the vehicle Michael Jones Jr. was driving, and that he later led them to the remains of four children.

The remains have not yet been scientifically identified, but they are believed to be those of Casei Jones’ four missing children — Cameron Bowers, 10, Preston Bowers, 5, ​​​​Mercalli Jones, 2, and Aiyana Jones, 1.

According to police, they believe Michael Wayne Jones Jr. killed the family at their Southeast 86th Terrace home near Sunset Harbor Road and U.S. 441 in Marion County’s Summerfield neighborhood.

They also believe he stashed the bodies at his home and in his van for several weeks before taking them to Georgia to dispose of them. 

They’ve since issued a warrant for the arrest of Michael Wayne Jones Jr.’s arrest on a charge of second-degree murder and say that more charges are coming.

In the meantime in Pennsylvania, it was supposed to be the happiest day of his daughter’s life.  It’s one she’ll never forget… but for all of the wrong reasons.

Police say a man blew up his house in an apparent suicide on the day of her wedding.

Moments before it exploded on Saturday, he was seen standing outside the home in Edgewood.

Because of the wedding, most members of the family were out of the house at the time.

“We came outside to see what was going on, and the house was in flames — still standing — but in flames,” neighbor Donna Antolovich told local media outlets. “Three to five minutes before the house blew up, the owner was standing in front of it. After that, nobody could find him.”

According to Edgewood Police Chief Robert Payne, investigators said it appeared he’d disconnected the gas line in the basement.

“And of course, it wouldn’t take much of a spark to explode the house,” he said.

Late Saturday, his body was found in the rubble.  Previously, police have been called to the home for domestic issues relating to mental illness and have now ruled the death a suicide.

Local media outlets say that his cell phone was found on the outside of the windshield of his vehicle.

Dann Laudermilch lives nearby.  He said the explosion shook his house “fairly violently.”

“I would say about 60 to 90 seconds after getting out here, the house just collapsed in one large movement with a lot of sound to it,” Laudermilch told the Post-Gazette. “By that time it was fully in flames. It went up in flames remarkably fast. I thought it would take longer to burn, but it was like a minute and a half — it was crazy.”

Another neighbor, Rochelle Levine, also spoke to media outlets about it.

 “A bomb, that is what it sounded like,” she said.

The only injury reported from emergency responders was a possible broken wrist by a police officer who was helping fire crews.

The neighbor’s house was also damaged – just days after it had been sold to a young couple that was about to move in.
