THE suspect who allegedly abducted four family members from a family business before they were found dead previously worked for them, a report said.

The California family has been identified as couple Jasleen Kaur, 27, and Jasdeep Singh, 36, their eight-month-old daughter Aroohi Dheri, and Jasdeep’s brother, Amandeep Singh, 39.

CBS47 reported that Saldago, who attempted suicide before being arrested by police, had previously worked for the family while police investigated the horrific case.

Saldago is currently in critical condition and receiving medical attention, the Merced County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

Merced County Sheriff Vernon Warnke said the agency’s “worst fears” came true when the bodies were discovered following the kidnapping, which was caught on camera Monday.

A farm worker found the bodies in an “extremely” rural and remote area of ​​Merced County.

“Tonight our worst fears were confirmed,” said Warnke.

“We found the four people involved in the kidnapping and they are indeed deceased.”

The horrifying find came after surveillance footage released on Wednesday showed the family being driven from their shop at gunpoint.

The family had opened the office for their company Unison Trucking Inc just a week earlier, family members told local news outlet KXTV.

The chilling video shows the suspect entering the building just before 9am, having walked up the property’s sidewalk with a white garbage bag in hand.

The store has no cameras inside.

The gun-wielding kidnapper wore a medical mask over his face as he escorted her from the store on South Highway 59 into a waiting car.

Both Singh brothers appeared to have their hands tied behind their backs as they were forced into a vehicle while Kaur was seen carrying their child.

“The back door opens at 9:11 a.m.,” said one MP at an earlier press conference.

The two brothers walk backwards, arms tied behind their backs, followed by the suspect with a gun.

You will be escorted to the vehicle parked nearby.

The suspect then returns to the store and comes out with Kaur holding Aroohi Dheri.

A motive for the kidnapping was unclear early Thursday morning.

The Associated Press reported that the kidnapper made no ransom demands.

Suspect Salgado had previously been convicted of first-degree robbery involving the use of a firearm in Merced County, attempted false incarceration and attempting to prevent or dissuade a victim or witness, the AP reported.

A judge sentenced him to 11 years in state prison and was released in 2015.

“Right now we think it was accidental,” Deputy Alexandra Britton said.

“We have no evidence to prove otherwise.”
