Mr. Tedesco said,
After being in this business for almost 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this. I don't have the word.
The murdered 36, and 22-year-old women are identified as the lesbian couple while police believe the 11-year-old boy and five-year-old girl are their children. Tedesco told reporters,
There are indications at the crime scene that this was not a random act.
We are certainly appealing to people in the community that would have any knowledge as to what may have transpired there to contact us as soon as possible.
Jackie Robinson Sr., the pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church said that their older son wasn't home when the killing occurred. He added he might be the only surviving member of the family. The Pastor told the Times Union,
Until they catch whoever they did this, there are certainly reasons to be fearful.
We don't know who did it. Until we find out, it certainly makes sense to be vigilant and keep your doors locked.
The property manager of the apartment had informed the police after he found the unresponsible people in the building early Tuesday afternoon.

Police haven't yet revealed any suspect in the murders, and they aren't releasing a potential motive in the fears of hurting their investigation. Tedesco said,
The emotions of a police officer is something you repress because there is a job to be done. But no one involved in this case is ever going to forget it. Right now our job is to bring this person to justice.
Where police have been tight-lipped about the murder and the victims, many Facebook users have come forward posting messages and photos, and sharing links to news articles about the killings in Troy.
