The bodies of three people who vanished a week ago in the US state of Ohio have been found in rubbish bags stuffed in a hollow tree trunk, police said.
The Knox County sheriff is holding an ex-convict, Matthew Hoffman, who led officers to the bodies.
At the weekend, police found the daughter of one of the victims bound and gagged in Hoffman's basement.
The unemployed tree trimmer was being held on kidnapping charges and was the only suspect in the killings.
Tina Herrmann, 32, her 11-year-old son Kody Maynard and 13-year-old daughter Sarah Maynard and her friend Stephanie Sprang, 41, were reported missing on 10 November after Tina Herrmann failed to show up for work at an ice cream stand.
Officers first questioned Hoffman the day after Tina Herrmann failed to show up for work. Police found him sitting in his car by a bike trail near where her vehicle was found
Sarah Maynard was found in the basement of Hoffman's house on Sunday.
"We're inspired by Sarah's bravery," said Knox County Sheriff David Barber, who declined to discuss her ordeal.
Police said Hoffman then provided information that led them to the bodies in a nearby wood. It was not immediately clear how they died.
Hoffman, who served prison time in the state of Colorado for arson and other charges, has not yet entered a plea to the current kidnapping charge.
