Sheriff Chris Bowman said the truck connected to a “mass murder” in Alexander County was found with the skeletal remains of three people inside in Grayson, Va., early Monday morning. According to Bowman, a deer hunter found the missing blue 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup truck. Law enforcement officials who went to process the scene say the truck had been burned. It is believed that the three bodies found burned in the bed of the truck are those of 38-year-old Maria Calderon and her boyfriend and friend, Jose Carlos Mendez and Luis Fernando Sanchez. “I would call it a mass murder,” said Bowman, talking about the homicide investigation that began as a house fire in June. Sheriff Chris Bowman said weeks ago he was hoping that once deer season opened that hunters might find some evidence in the case, specifically the truck.
