Search for Killers Continues
By Charles Lewis

  Local authorities continue their search for the perpetrator or perpetrators of Sunday's multiple-murder at Lake Silver Bear. No new information has been released on possible suspects, but the identities of the victims have. The four bodies found have been identified as John and Dorothy Chambers of Brownsville, and their two young children, Cindy and Alan. Few details of the murders are known, but sources close to the investigation say two of the bodies were found hanging from a tree, upside down. The other two bodies were discovered on the ground below. Sources have also confirmed that all four bodies were found stripped naked. Earlier this week, Sheriff Miller Dansby issued a town-wide curfew of eight o'clock. Dansby released a statement today that Camp Silver Bear will continue to be shut down as the investigation continues.
