In upstate New York, police are on the hunt for the person responsible for the murder of a mother, her two kids, and her partner found the day after Christmas.

NBC News reports that the city of Troy is on high alert as police track down the killer who committed what the police chief calls,”savagery.”

36-year-old Shanta Myers, her 11-year-old son Jeremiah, her 5-year-old daughter Shanise and 22-year-old Brandi Mells were found tied and bounded in their basement apartment. Myers who has a 15-year-old son was out of town when the murder occurred.

Not much information surrounding the deaths of the victims were released, however, the Albany Times Union states that the victims were found with their throats slashed.

Unclear on the motives for the murder, police believe that the victims were targeted.

Shakera Symes, Myers sister described her sister as, “sweet…She goes out of her way to want to be loved. She wouldn’t be involved in anything that would be close to deserving this. She’s very mild-mannered.”

Symes now has custody of her sister’s 15-year-old son and is asking anyone with any information to come forward.
