TROY -- Troy police first announced they had two people in custody, and have since clarified that no one has been arrested -- they are just questioning two people in connection
No other information is being offered at this time.
There has been an enormous push for answers from the victims' family as well as the community.
We sat down with family members yesterday including the 15 year old whose mother, brother, and sister were 3 of the 4 people found murdered in their basement apartment.
They are begging for anyone with information to come forward to help get the monster responsible for this heinous crime off the streets, and bring justice for 5 year old Shanise Myers, 11 year old Jeremiah "JJ" Myers, the children's mother 36 year old Shanta Myers, and her partner 22 year old Brandi Mells.
Victory Christian Church in Albany has even upped their reward from 5 thousand to 10 thousand dollars for information leading to an arrest.
Again, Troy police say right now they are questioning two people in connection to the quadruple homicide.
We will bring the latest updates in the case as we get them.
