Two adults and one teenager found dead in gruesome triple homicide, a toddler and an infant discovered alive on premises
The authorities say that the investigation is in the early stages and no motive or suspect has been identified yet
Virginia police are currently investigating a gruesome triple homicide which has sent shock waves through the close-knit Spotsylvania community.
The bodies of 39-year-old Michael Coleman, his partner 34-year-old Rachel Ozuna, and Ozuna's 14-year-old son Kyrrus Ozuna were found dead in their home on Wednesday morning.
The trio was found dead by a relative who had gone to the residence after being unable to reach them. A toddler and an infant were found dehydrated but unharmed inside the house. Both the children were taken to a hospital for treatment and observation.
The infant was identified as Coleman and Ozuna's child and is only a few months old, as reported Fredericksburg.com. No information was available on the toddler.
On Thursday, the police shared that the three family members were killed with "some sort of sharp instrument". Sources shared that one of the victims was found in a different part of the house.
The authorities have not yet released any information about a motive or suspect given their investigation is in its early stages. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with expenses to transport Ozuna and Kyrrus back to their native in Utah for burial. The creator of the GoFundMe account has not been identified but wrote, "no reason imaginable is reason enough for these three to meet their end the way they did."
Ozuna's devastated father Richard Ozuna took to Facebook to express his grief and distress regarding his daughter's death. He wrote in a post on Wednesday, "I received the worst news a parent could get that his child and grandchild what had been killed. Doing our best to keep it together... thank you for the prayers."
Many of the family's friends and family have taken to commenting on the GoFundMe page to express their condolences.
One person wrote, "I was his substitute teacher. There was never a time that I did not see a smile on Kyrrus' face. My prayers to the entire family." While another added, "This is so tragic, what is becoming of this world? My heart goes out to the families who were affected and I’m saddened to hear that there were kids involved that are going to have to live with the memory of this horror for the rest of their lives."
