Two children, two women found 'savagely' killed in basement apartment

NY authorities are investigating the deaths of four people after the bodies were found in a basement apartment in Troy a day after Christmas.

The family were found dead inside the basement apartment in the Lansingburgh section of Troy at about 12.50pm on Tuesday - but police haven't given clear details as to how they were killed, or why.

Police have released few details about the killings, including the manner of death.

Their names are now withheld while police contact their relatives.

According to the Times Union, the building's property manager found the bodies on Tuesday after concerned relatives informed him that their calls to the property went unanswered.

He added: "After being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this". "Only a person of savagery would do something like this". Investigators revealed little about the deaths, declining to identify the victims or say how they were killed.

"We do not believe this was a random act". "I don't think there's any doubt that a person who committed this crime is capable of anything", Tedesco said, adding that police don't believe there was an imminent danger to the public. State police were involved in the investigation along with NY parole officials, Tedesco said.

"There's not a resource we won't tap", Tedesco told reporters.

Police chiefs have appealed for any information relating to the murders, with Mr Tedesco adding: "The emotions of a police officer is something you repress because there is a job to be done".

They found the bodies inside the home and a medic pronounced all four dead.

Tedesco said the victims were an 11-year-old boy, a 5-year-old girl and two adult women, ages 22 and 36.

"I want people to understand that these were children and that's the greatest disgrace that has ever happened", Frank Mayben Jr., who coached the boy, said Wednesday at a press conference. "He was very coachable and lovable".

The circumstances surrounding the Boxing Day deaths of the same-sex couple and their children echoes the 2014 slaying of the Chen family at their home in nearby Guilderland.

A local pastor told Times Union the 36-year-old also has an older son who was not home at the time. "We don't know who did it".
