CRIME: Black Lesbian Couple (And 2 Kids) Slaughtered In Troy, NY

I spent 8 years living in upstate New York attending college at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. So when I see Troy in the news it catches my attention. This week I saw a story about the horrific murder of a Black lesbian couple and their two kids.

The New York Times reported on the story:
The police identified the victims as Shanta Myers, 36; her children Jeremiah, 11, and Shanise, 5; and her partner, Brandi Mells, 22. Jackie Robinson Sr., the pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church, told The Times Union that Ms. Myers also had an older son who was not home when the killings happened. 
The family was found dead on Tuesday afternoon in their basement apartment at 158 Second Avenue, in a neighborhood of subdivided Victorian houses along the Hudson River. Chief Tedesco said the number of victims, their age and the way they were killed — which he declined to describe — made the crime the worst he had seen in more than 40 years in law enforcement.
The latest news is that two suspects have been arraigned in the case: Justin Mann and James White.

I will be following this case closely to find out what the reason for the vicious murder of this family was. The youngest child was 5!
