Formal pronouncement of death was made on Tuesday at 4:44 p.m.

The decedent was one of four victims found dead at a house in Palmdale.

Paramedics from the county fire department arrived at the 37500 block of 17th Street East at around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday regarding a report about men with medical complications.

The medical distress the men were experiencing remains unclear.

“There were obvious signs they had been deceased for a while,” Chris Reynoso, a spokesman for the fire department, told the Los Angeles Times.

NBC4 reported that a neighbor told the station that three of the four men were related.

The Times reported two of the victims were found in the home’s backyard and two were inside the house.
