TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Police say they've arrested a man who's a suspect in a quadruple murder in the Tampa Bay area and a 4-year-old autistic boy believed to be his son has been found safe.

SWAT teams from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office and Tampa Police Department swarmed the Floridian Hotel in downtown Tampa early Friday after tracking 28-year-old Adam Matos to the area.

The child, Ismael Tristan Santisteban, was with Matos at the hotel.

The search for Matos and the boy began Thursday after Pasco County Sheriff's deputies conducting a welfare check at a Hudson home found the bodies. The deputies found no one at the home but noticed a horrible odor. They walked down the street toward an area where birds were circling and found four bodies.
