WCVB-TV reported that the police were searching for two men. O’Brien told Patch said she could not comment on whether police were searching for suspects. Waltham Police Department spokesman Sgt. Timothy King told Patch he could not comment on that either.
- Discovery Of Bodies: Langton, the neightbor, told the Globe that she saw the girlfriend of one of the victims exit the home after finding the three bodies. The girl, Langton told the Globe, was distraught and said the bodies were covered in blood and marijuana.
- Cause of Death: According to WCVB-TV, the victims were stabbed with a knife or ice pick. O’Brien told Patch an autopsy would determine the causes of death.
