From the beginning, police, who have not provided details about the deaths, described the case as a horrific crime.
Troy police on Thursday identified 36-year-old Shanta Myers; her children, 11-year-old Jeremiah Myers and 5-year-old Shanise Myers; and Mells as the victims of the quadruple homicide discovered Tuesday afternoon.
The city of Troy is located just outside of the state capital, Albany, and is about 160 miles north of New York City.
Authorities, as of this writing, have no suspects or persons of interest in the case, though Tedesco has noted that he does not believe this was a random act of violence, suggesting that Myers, Mells and the two kids knew the perpetrator or perpetrators in some way.
Police Chief John Tedesco says he has "never seen savagery like this" in 42 years in law enforcement.
They found the bodies inside the home and a medic pronounced all four dead.
The killings had left Myers' relatives and 15-year-old son broken and desperate for answers.
"There's not a resource we won't tap", Tedesco said.
