Officials say the bodies are believed to be those of Agnes Dupont de Ligonnes, 49, and her four children: Arthur, 21; Thomas, 18; Anne, 16; and Benoit, 13. Xavier Dupont de Ligonnes, the father, remains missing and there are no signs of a struggle in the house.
The gruesome discoveries began with a severed leg being dug up at the house in Nantes.
One letter suggests the family wanted to move to Australia, while an email sent by the father said he was a secret US agent about to testify in a drug case, and leaving to join a witness protection programme.
