The sheriff said a neighbor found the gruesome scene in the 4500 block of Wolcek Road, east of Crosby.
Gonzales said at a news conference on Tuesday: “At the first stage of the case, based on the injuries that have been looked at, it looks like this could be a potentially two-murder case. and a suicide.
“But that’s still being investigated…we’ll continue to investigate further.”

Gonzalez said two of the teenagers could be related, and the third could be friends or acquaintances. New York Post report.
“We don’t know full connectivity at this point,” he explains.
“It’s all still very preliminary.”
The chief also said: “Whenever there are kids involved… at the end of the day, we’re all parents in some way and connected with young people.
“It’s extremely difficult when we’re talking about young people.”
As an investigation is still underway, neighbor David Givans expressed shock at CLAUSE 11.
Givans told the news agency: “It’s really surprising to see something like this happen here with one of us.
“It’s a close-knit community for the most part. We’re all wary of each other.”
