Police investigating deaths of 3 in apartment 26 Mar 13

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – St. Paul police have released the names of a couple and the wife’s brother found dead in an apartment.

Investigators on Monday identified the victims as 31-year-old Chue Lor, his 27-year-old wife, Pahnia Yang, and Yang’s brother, 18-year-old Kong Meng Lee.

Authorities say they are not looking for a suspect, but did not immediately classify the case as a double murder-suicide. Authorities have not ruled on how the victims died.

Authorities say four children, under the age of 10, were in the apartment at the time of the slayings Sunday afternoon. Hmong interpreters were called in to help interview the children and others at the scene.

Neighbor Laurel Hilden tells the Star Tribune the children belong to the apartment building’s caretaker.
