LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Detectives with the Little Rock Police Department are investigating a triple homicide.
Watch the attached web extra to hear what Ofc. Steve Moore revealed to reporters from the scene at an apartment complex on Lancaster Road Tuesday afternoon.
At 2:05 p.m. here at 6600 Lancaster Apt #85..a lady came to check on her family members and found an adult and 2 children deceased.
Officers responded here I think the initial call was deceased individuals or suicide that is not how we are looking at this case at this time. It is being actively investigated as a triple homicide at this time.
We have an adult female she is 24 years old and then 2 children. At this time we believe it is the adult's children but we are still trying to confirm that.
We are not releasing the cause of death yet right now we are still investigating that...we have detectives all in the complex doing background checks canvassers are trying to figure out the last time these individuals were seen alive.
It's my understanding the family member came over to check because the children did not go to school today. Nobody could get the mother on the phone.
Right now we don't have any concrete suspect information to give out.
2 o'clock is the time we found them. As far as the time this occurred that is still unknown right now.
We discovered three individuals that have been killed here we are investigating as a triple homicide at this time. One adult female and two children, one male, one female.
When it's kids it makes it that much more difficult...I think that's what I was referring to more often in the last year. This time last year we had had two children killed and now we have two others here.
As far as the multiple homicides from time to time they do occur like that it really doesn't change what the detectives do. You may have multiple victims but you are still looking for the same people involved. Whether it is one person or multiple.
We have a triple homicide, 2 children involved and we have utilized our violent crime detectives to come out and help us with our neighborhood canvas.
We also have an apartment complex. You want to be able to hit as many doors as possible. We can utilize them on that. If they can find something they believe and homicide detective needs to follow up on they can go and get them and have them do the follow up right then.
