BILLINGS- The Park County Sheriff's Office has released a statement concerning a triple homicide it is investigating in Clark, Wyoming.
The statement reads as follows:
The Park County Sheriff's Office is investigating a triple homicide that occurred today at approximately 11:00 hours in northern Park County. Two suspects in connection with the murders have been apprehended and are currently in custody. There are no other suspects being sought at this time in connection to the case.
The names of the deceased are being withheld at this time pending positive identification and notification of next of kin.
The investigation is in the early stages and at this time there is no further information available, but more information will be provided as we continue the investigation.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol confirms that the three victims were the female homeowner at the residence where the murder took place, her mother and her father.
The woman was married, but her husband was not home at the time and is believed to be working out of town.
Robert Bushman Jr. lives across the street from where the incident took place on Big View Road in Clark.
The seven-year resident of the neighborhood said that the homeowner had lived there for at least as long as he had.
Bushman says he was vacuuming his home at the time of the incident and did not notice that anything had happened until emergency crews arrived.
Bushman says he was informed of what had happened by a neighbor who saw the incident unfold.
"Basically, a white car had come up the road, pulled right up to the driveway-two young men got out, went up to the front door," said Bushman of his neighbor's description. "Around 20 minutes later, the homeowner's black Audi went flying down the gravel road-it's a gravel road mind you-went flying down the road with the white car following it. And then, two of the homeowner's dogs were chasing the cars and the other neighbor saw one of the dogs, got it into their truck and went to take it back to the house. And when they stepped inside, that's when they found the bodies."
The Wyoming Highway Patrol did say that it is not the lead agency on the investigation, but rather made a traffic stop which initiated the arrest of the suspects.
The Park County Sheriff's Office is the leading agency for the investigation.
