Those killed lived in a roughly one-square-mile area of the town of Beauregard, a resilient, community-oriented town of roughly 9,000, said Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones.

"Never have we witnessed the magnitude of this type of trauma, of tragedy," Rusty Sowell, pastor at the local Providence Baptist Church, told ABC News Tuesday.

Sowell said, however, that he "witnessed a tremendous demonstration of love" when families learned of their loved one's fates.

Two companies have offered to cover the funeral costs, Lee County Coroner Bill Harris told ABC Columbus affiliate WTVM.
