BEGGS, Okla. (AP) – Authorities in eastern Oklahoma say three people found dead in an eastern Oklahoma residence all sustained gunshot wounds.
The Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office says that the victims were discovered at about 3 p.m. Saturday in Beggs, about 83 miles (134 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City. Sheriff’s Lt. Dustin Todd identified the victims Sunday as 65-year-old Jack Chandler, his wife, 69-year-old Evelyn Chandler, and their daughter, 43-year-old Tiffany Eichor.
Deputies were called to the home after a family member found the victims and notified law enforcement authorities. It was not immediately clear when the victims were shot.
Todd says that the scene is being investigated as a triple homicide, but authorities did not release information about a possible suspect in the case.
