2 children, 2 women killed in Troy homicide, police say

Police launched an investigation after four people were found dead in the basement of an upstate NY home Tuesday in what is considered a quadruple homicide.

Investigators have not released the victims' identifies or say how they were killed, but neighbors tell Albany Times Union that a woman lived in the basement apartment with her children, ages 8 and 11, and her partner.

Police and medics found the victims after a property manager reported four unresponsive people in the basement Tuesday, Troy Police Capt. Dan DeWolf told CNN affiliate WTEN. Tedesco said the women were in a relationship and one was the mother of the children. He called the killings the worst he has seen in 42 years in law enforcement but didn't provide details.

"This is not a random act", Tedesco said.

The victims' names were being withheld pending notification of relatives, he said.

State police were involved in the investigation along with NY parole officials, Tedesco said. "We don't believe there is a danger to the public".

Investigators remained at the scene Wednesday.

Officers swarmed the street and cordoned off the area around the house. Few people ventured out on the snow-covered sidewalks in temperatures in the teens.
