As we previously reported, Maurice Robinson, 25, of Craigavon, was arrested after at total of 39 bodies were discovered Wednesday in Grays. He was also charged with conspiracy to traffic people. Four others have been arrested in the case. However, Robinson was the first of those arrested to be charged in what is seen as one of the U.K.’s biggest cases of people smuggling.

As of right now, U.K. police are struggling to identify all the victims, who are believed to have come from Asia. Very few documents were found with the bodies, Essex Police Detective Chief Inspector Martin Pasmore said. Officers said they have been trying to identify the bodies through fingerprints, DNA, dental records and distinguishing features such as tattoos or scars.

The Vietnamese Embassy in London has set up a hotline for families to call about missing family members.

NBC notes that Robinson is due in court Monday.
