    how can you find "up to five" bodies ... ?

    I'm confused as hell

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-45463799

    So the headline says police have found "up to five" bodies in a house they were called to

    "Up To Five" confuses me. I can see how a police spokesman may fear there might be as many as X ....

    But to have found " Up to five" is wierd. I mean, unless one is suspected of having had two heads...

    So is something strange going on or am I overanalysing

    They are probably doing a head count, as we speak, John.
