4 Family Members Kidnapped Found Dead Including 8-Month-Old Baby



4 Family Members Found Dead Including 8-Month-Old Baby After Being Kidnapped In Central California

Days after a Central Valley family of 4, including an 8-month-old child, were kidnapped, Merced County officials announced Wednesday evening that they were found dead.

“Tonight, our worst fears have been confirmed,” Merced County Sheriff Vernon Warnke said. “There’s no words right now to describe the anger I feel and the senselessness of the incident.”

The family was taken against their will from a business in the south Merced area of the county, the Merced County Sheriff’s Office said. The child, Aroohi Dheri, was kidnapped along with her 27-year-old mother Jasleen Kaur, her 36-year-old father Jasdeep Singh, and her 39-year-old uncle Amandeep Singh.

Warnke said the office got a call at 5:30 p.m. from a nearby farmer near Indiana and Hutchins roads near the city of Dos Palos.

The bodies were found “relatively close” to each other, Warnke said. The area where they were found is described as extremely rural and remote farmland.

Earlier Wednesday, the sheriff’s office released surveillance video of a person of interest they believe was 48-year-old Jesus Manuel Salgado walking outside a business with the family.

Investigators believe the motivation for the kidnapping was money, and that there may be another suspect out there.
