UPDATE: Two suspects have been arrested in the investigation. The sheriff's office says it will provide more information in the noon news conference.
On Monday, we expect to learn new information about the murders of seven people in Morgan County.
The Morgan County Sheriff's Office will provide an update on the investigation at noon.
Just over three weeks ago, seven people were killed at a home on Talucah Road in Valhermoso Springs.
At this time, no one has been arrested in this case. At the last update, the Morgan County Sheriff's Office said they were following up on nearly 100 tips. They said it's possible there is more than one suspect and they do expect arrests to happen soon.
The home was partially on fire when deputies responded on the night of June 4. They were able to put the fire out and found seven people shot inside, including a 17-year-old whose name has not been released.
We now know the victims are:
- Tammy Muzzey, 45, of Valhermoso Springs
- Jeramy Roberts, 31, of Athens
- James Benford, 22, of Decatur
- Emily Payne, 21, of Valhermoso Springs
- Roger Jones, Jr., 19, of Decatur
- William Hodgin, 18, of Somerville
- Juvenile, 17
The sheriff's office is working this investigation, along with the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.
So far, the sheriff's office has not released a motive for the murders. They did say they believe this appears to be an isolated, targeted event, but they did not say why they believe that.
WAAY 31 will be at the news conference on Monday to bring you the latest details.
