View Comments

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ East Hartford police have identified a second victim in a Thanksgiving Day triple homicide.

Police on Monday said one of the victims was 60-year-old Pamela Johns. Authorities had previously announced that 74-year-old Beverly Therrien had died. Police say Johns had recently moved into Therrien’s home to care for her.

The third victim, a man, has not yet been publicly identified. All died of “extreme violence and trauma.”
Lt. Curtis Stoldt says police are still processing physical evidence inside the home on Naomi Drive.

Police say they don’t have any suspects and are continuing to track down people connected to the victims.

Authorities say some people have been reluctant to cooperate with investigators.

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