Car Explodes Near Home Where Man Dressed As Santa Suspected Of Killing Eight People

A car has exploded near a Los Angeles home where a man suspected of killing eight people was found dead Christmas morning.

Authorities say they found ammunition in the car Bruce Pardo is believed to have parked near his brother's house.

Pardo drove to the home and killed himself after investigators say he slaughtered eight people at a Christmas Eve party 25 miles away, in Covina.

He went to his in-laws' house dressed as Santa Claus, opened fire, then used a homemade device wrapped in a gift box to spray a flammable liquid and set the house ablaze. Pardo's ex-wife and her parents are believed to be among the dead.

Authorities say Pardo worked recently in the aerospace industry and was angry over a messy divorce.
