The fact that the call was made for an unconscious person has aroused the suspicions of internet sleuths. A Reddit user speculated, "I am hung up on the question as to why only one person was mentioned needing help in the 911 call? If a friend or surviving roommate saw the victims and passed out, wouldn't the call be for that person and the victim(s) that individual discovered? Therefore at a minimum, an unconscious person and a victim with stab wounds if they didn't get close enough to look? If they just discovered one victim, and that was the unconscious person being referenced in the call, where were they located in the house? If they were killed in their sleep as speculate by the coroner, how could only one have been discovered at that time? All reports I have heard point to the police discovering the victims after responding to the call. Would love to hear thoughts on this."

In response, one user asked, "Why not go upstairs and tell M and K that you m believe something is wrong instead of summoning friends outside the home."
