Authorities gave reporters a tour inside the apartment of the San Bernardino suspects' apartment this week following an announcement regarding the female believed to be involved in the California shootings. 

Reporters looked through photos of the family and were even allowed into one of the bedrooms to see if they could learn more about the suspected massacre shooters. 

Earlier in the day, U.S. law enforcement official says the wife of the couple blamed in the deadly California shootings pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and the terror group's leader on Facebook using an alias then deleted the messages before the attacks.

Specifics details about Tashfeen Malik's postings weren't disclosed Friday by the law enforcement official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because this person was not allowed to discuss an ongoing investigation.

The remarkable disclosure about Malik's online activities provided the first significant details suggesting a motive for her participation with her husband, Syed Farook, in the shootings that killed 14 people and injured 21.

Malik was a Pakistani woman who came to the U.S. in 2014 on a fiancee visa before Farook married her in California.
