RAYTOWN — Authorities returned today to an apartment in the Kansas City suburb of Raytown hoping to find more clues about the deaths of a man, a woman and two boys killed there.
Investigators are treating it as a multiple homicide case, but they haven't said how the four were killed.
Police identified one victim as 21-year-old Precious Tripplett. Another victim was a 33-year-old male whose name had not been released. Police said the identities of a 10-year-old boy and a 7-year-old boy who also were killed would not be released.
Tripplett was the dead children's aunt and the apartment where they were found was hers. The relationship of the dead man was not immediately known.
Tripplett's 18-month-old son was also in the apartment and was unharmed. Police said the child was not the sibling of the dead boys. He's staying with other family members.
