COLE CAMP — Funeral services were held on Sunday evening in Cole Camp for three family members killed last week in their west-central Missouri home.

Donnie Luetjen, his wife, Sharon Luetjen, and their 15-year-old granddaughter, Taron Luetjen, were found shot to death in their Cole Camp home Tuesday. No arrests have been made in the homicide investigation.

Burial is scheduled for Monday afternoon.

Also, Deborah Armenta, daughter of Donnie and Sharon Luetjen, released a statement over the weekend, saying the family has been "greatly disappointed in the trash and negativity" in the media about the case.

The statement said the family's priority is to make sure the victims are buried with "peace and dignity."
