Authorities discovered five bodies in Lincoln County, Tennessee, the second crime scene at a Huntsville business.  

Investigators say they have a man in custody ---Jacob Lee Shafer---who confessed to the killings.

Authorities say Traci Shaffer, her 16-year-old son and teenage neighbor were found dead Saturday in her home near Fayetteville.

The bodies of Shaffer's brother and father were found in a neighboring home.
