DOVER, Del. (AP) — Five victims of the 1978 Peoples Temple mass suicide-murder in Jonestown, Guyana, were among the names released by Delaware officials of people whose cremated remains were recently discovered inside an abandoned funeral home.

Thirty-eight sets of remains were discovered last month. Thirty-one were clearly labeled.

They included nine victims of the 1978 Peoples Temple mass suicide-murder in Jonestown, Guyana.

Authorities were able to contact the families of five of the deceased, including four Jonestown victims, shortly after they were discovered.
