Family Seeks Answers In West Nashville Triple Murder
NASHVILLE, Tenn. --The family members connected to the victims in a triple murder in West Nashville just arrived in town Wednesday afternoon seeking answers.
On Monday, officers were called to a home on Maxon Avenue in West Nashville when a 28-year-old woman found the bodies of her mother, sister and father inside the home. 48-year-old Deborah Sullivan, 26-year-old Wendy Sullivan and 56-year-old Patrick Sullivan were all found dead at the scene.
Investigators have not released information about how the victims were killed, but did say they suffered significant trauma to their bodies.
Detectives from the Metro Police Crime Scene Investigators Unit spent all day Wednesday at the house collecting more evidence.
Family members spoke to police and gave them as much information about the family as possible.
"All of them, that's why I can't understand why this went on because all of them were the sweetest people you'd ever want to meet in your life. They would give you their last dime or the shirt off their backs if you needed it. I don't understand why this happened," said Wesley McGaw, Deborah Sullivan's brother.
The McGaw family lives in Kentucky. They'd just talked to Deborah the night before she was killed.
"Well, she texted me. I hadn't talked to her in a couple of days and she was on my case and said they were going to come up in a couple of weeks after Halloween, because his other son is expecting a baby," said Wesley McGaw.
On Tuesday, police arrested two young men for questioning in this crime, but have since cleared them as suspects. Police appear to be back to square one and are working other leads in the case.
