A tragic discovery was made as authorities found human remains on property in Hudson, Florida, following the disappearance of a family of four, including two young children.

A 25-year-old named Rory Atwood has been charged with first-degree murder, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Chris Nocco provided an update during a press conference on Saturday, stating that the human remains discovered on Atwood’s property have not been identified yet.
