TROY, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say they're preparing to release the names of a woman, her two children and a second woman who were found slain this week inside their upstate New York apartment.
The Troy Police Department says Thursday that the names and photos of the victims will be released "in the very near future." On Wednesday police divulged that the victims included a 36-year-old woman, her 5-year-old daughter, her 11-year-old son and a 22-year-old woman who was in a relationship with the older woman.
Officials have released few other details about the slayings since a property manager found the victims' bodies Tuesday in a basement apartment in a home along the Hudson River in Troy, just north of Albany.
Police Chief John Tedesco said that in more than 40 years in law enforcement he had "never seen savagery like this."
