NY police investigate four possible murders in apartment upstate

NY police investigate four possible murders in apartment upstate”

"After being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this", Troy Police Chief John Tedesco told reporters at a news conference Wednesday.

The Times Union reported the basement apartment was most recently occupied by a woman, her two children and her "partner". "I don't know of a word that can say it", Tedesco said at a news conference.

He was speaking after four people were found slain in a basement apartment the day after Christmas were identified as two children, their mother and a second woman. "The emotions of a police officer are something you repress because there is a job to be done", Tedesco said, adding that no one involved in this case will ever forget it. Law enforcement sources told media outlets in Albany that the victims were all found tied up.

Troy police captain Daniel DeWolf said the deaths were "certainly suspicious".

While we do not yet know the names of victims, ages, genders or causes of the deaths, we do know that police are treating the incident as a possible quadruple homicide. The victims' identities are being withheld for now.

"This is not a random act", Tedesco said.

A 5-year-old girl, 11-year-old boy, 22-year-old woman and 36-year-old woman were killed, Tedesco said. But they hope those details will become clear after the autopsies are conducted Wednesday. "We don't believe there is a danger to the public".

When they arrived just before 1 p.m., they found the bodies of four people, all confirmed dead on the scene.

Investigators were still working at the scene Wednesday morning.
