When police arrived at the about 10-acre farm, they found the injured victim and quickly provided medical assistance before uncovering the four dead bodies.

‘We immediately called in the OSBI for assistance with interviews and to work the crime scene because it’s such a large area,’ Banther said. 

It’s unclear how many people were at the farm, but police said that they brought in a Chinese interpreter to interview uninjured witnesses.  

There are about 80 ‘grow houses’ on the farm and police are still extensively searching the premises for additional people or clues, according to a local news outlet. 

‘We’re still searching the grounds,’ OSBI Captain Stan Florence told CBS News. ‘we had ground folks looking last night in the dark. There is quite a few facilities around to look at. We are looking for any people that may be out here at this time. 

‘[We’re] going through each little structure this morning and making sure, in the daylight, that there is nothing or no one else out there that we need to be aware of.’ 

OSBI helicopters continued to comb the area as of Monday afternoon.
