Police: 'Extreme Violence' in East Hartford Triple Killing

View Comments

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – East Hartford police say three people found dead in a local home on Thanksgiving Day died from “extreme violence and trauma” in what appears to be a highly personal crime.

Lt. Curtis Stoldt said Monday that police are still processing a large amount of physical evidence inside the home on Naomi Drive, where 74-year-old Beverly Therrien and two people yet to be identified were found dead of blunt trauma.

Police say they don’t have any suspects in the case, and they are continuing to track down people connected to the victims. Authorities say some people have been reluctant to cooperate with the investigation.

Officials say it doesn’t appear to have been a random robbery or burglary, but the exact motive remains unclear.

Stoldt says there’s a lot of blood and damage inside the house.
