  • Troy police investigate multiple deaths at 158 Second Avenue on Tuesday

Additionally, police have released the manner by which they were murdered, with each of the victims being found bound with their throats cut, according toNY Daily News.

A property manager found 36-year-old Shanta Myers; her children, 11-year-old Jeremiah Myers and 5-year-old Shanise Myers; and 22-year-old Brandi Mells in a basement apartment along the Hudson River, just north of Albany on Tuesday.

"We do not believe this was a random act".

"After being in this business for nearly 42 years, I can't describe the savagery of this", Troy police chief James Tedesco said during a press conference.

A pastor says a woman and her two children among four people killed in an upstate NY basement apartment were much loved and respected in the neighborhood. "We do not believe there is any imminent danger to the community". "I don't know of a word for it".

"My heart remains with both the Myers and Mells families", said Madden, who expressed hope that "with the support of the Troy community, they can begin to heal".

Police from Troy and Schenectady, as well as other agencies, began focusing on the suspects, in part, after reviewing footage from security cameras in Troy, the sources said.


"I don't have to tell you what a good feeling it is to have these two in custody", he said.

Shanta Myers' sister said they had planned to spend the holiday together. "I can only ask if you know anything at all, even if you think its insignificant, call us". She says she last spoke with her sister last week.

And Shanise's uncle Khalif Coleman said, smiling, that the 5-year-old had already been her own person.

"I'm scared to go to the corner store", he told reporters, according to the Times Union. Also killed was Myers' partner, Brandi Mells.

"We're going to do everything we can to look into this and get to the bottom of what happened here", he continued.

"Unfortunately, it's disgusting, terrible, sad - especially at this time of the year - that there's four deceased folks in there", he said. "Right now our job is to bring this person to justice".
