Police identify 2 women, children killed in Troy basement

"There are indications at the crime scene that this was not a random act", Tedesco said, according to the Albany Times-Union newspaper.

Myers' cousin, Tracy Coleman, grieved for the family on social media and asked that reporters respect the family's privacy and allow them to mourn. Troy police say the deaths are being treated as suspicious. "I don't have the word".

Pastor Jackie Robinson Sr. of the Oak Grove Baptist Church in Troy said Shanta Myers had been a bus monitor for many years for Durham School Services, which runs the Troy school system's buses.

"After being in this business for almost 42 years, I can say I have not seen savagery like this", Police Chief John Tedesco said in a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

The victims were a 36-year-old woman, her five-year-old daughter, her 11-year-old son and her 22-year-old girlfriend.

"Our hearts are broken and our thoughts and deepest condolences are with their family and loved ones during this terribly troubling time", School Superintendent John Carmello said in a statement.

"It was the number of people killed, the manner in which they were killed", Tedesco continued.

He also said that members of the clergy are speaking to children at the local Boys and Girls Club, describing them as 'traumatized'. "We don't know who did it".

'A few had nightmares since this happened. "Kids are traumatized. A lot of adults are traumatized too, because this monster is still out there".

Their bodies were discovered by the manager of the property after concern about the family had been raised by neighbours. He said investigators were still piecing together a time frame and that they were hopeful that the autopsies, performed on Wednesday, would help shed light on when the family was killed.

Police have said they still don't have a suspect for the murders, and don't want to release a potential motive in the fears of hurting their investigation.

'But no one involved in this case is ever going to forget it. "If you know anything at all even, if you think its insignificant. please call us", he said. Right now our job is to bring this person to justice'.

"We all believe that the house and the people were targeted", Marcel Lajoy, who is an attorney who lived two homes down from where murders occurred, was quoted in 2015 by the NY Post as saying.

Police have not made any arrests in the case. The incident is being investigated as a quadruple homicide.
