KYW: Man returns home, inconsolable

KYW News Radio reports:

A young man who appeared to be in his early 20s arrived just after 6 a.m. this morning at the charred remains of his home, where seven people died late Friday night. He was coming home from work. Inconsolable, he exclaimed that he had lost his mother, his brother, two sisters and a nephew. "They're dead, they're dead." The police would not let him near the property.

Then, shortly after 7 a.m, his father arrived at the property on the 6400 block of Elmwood Avenue. He, too, was barred from entering the home by police.
