UPDATE: April 23, 2021 - Marshal Rd, Investigation

UPDATE - April 16, 2021

While a suspect has been identified in the murders of the Lesslie family, Robert Shook and James Lewis, and that suspect is deceased, this tragedy is still the subject of an active law enforcement investigation.  Investigators are diligently investigating this case and the premature release of information will impact their ability to find the answers that are so desperately wanted by everyone that has been impacted by this horrendous event.  

We understand that there is a tremendous amount of public interest in this case and we will release further details when such release will not impact our ability to investigate these crimes.  Furthermore, our office is committed to ensuring that the families of the victims are appraised of all developments in the case before such information is released to the public.  

Thank you for your continued patience and please keep everyone that was impacted by this devastating event in your thoughts and prayers.
