Lesbian couple, two children found slain in upstate NY home

Lesbian couple, two children found slain in upstate NY home

The day after Christmas, police found the bodies of 36-year-old Shanta Myers, two of her children, Shanise Meyers, 5, and Jeremiah "JJ" Myers, 11, and her partner, 22-year-old Brandi Mells, inside a basement apartment in Troy, New York. They were found dead December 26 inside their basement apartment at 158 2nd Avenue in the Lansingburgh section of the city.

Pastor Jackie Robinson Sr. of the Oak Grove Baptist Church in Troy said Shanta Myers had been a bus monitor for many years for Durham School Services, which runs the Troy school system's buses.

Tedesco said he did not believe the crime was random.

"I'm still sick. I've never seen anything like it", Guilderland Police Chief Carol Lawlor said at the time.

The victims were a 36-year-old woman, her five-year-old daughter, her 11-year-old son and her 22-year-old girlfriend. Police said they are not releasing the names of the victims until next of kin can be notified. No suspect has been identified publicly.

"There's a lot of grieving that's going on, and it will continue to go on, but I think this will be a great opportunity for some closure for these families in the community", Monica Kurzejeski, deputy mayor of Troy, said at the news conference. "The longer you wait, the further away this perpetrator gets and it makes it harder for us to sleep at night", said Symes. This will be a full-court press, if you will, until we bring someone to justice.

The killings had left Myers' relatives and 15-year-old son broken and desperate for answers.

They found the bodies inside the home and a medic pronounced all four dead. "I don't know of a word that could say".

Two suspects in a quadruple homicide in Troy were in the custody of Schenectady police late Friday as detectives worked to secure search warrants in connection with the investigation, according to law enforcement sources.

"We don't know who did it".

"We're talking about the tragic taking of four lives", Tedesco said.

Rewards totaling $6,500 have been offered for information leading to an arrest.
