Lee Co. sheriff: Bodies of child, 2 adults found

TUPELO, Miss. (FOX13) -

Three people including a 13 year old girl found dead inside a home in Lee County, Mississippi yesterday were each shot once in the head.  That's what the Lee County Sheriff's department is saying.   Investigators also say Wiley Young, Danica McCord, and Destiny McCord appear to have died from their gunshot wounds but autopsies are pending.    

Right now-investigators aren't calling this a murder-suicide but say they don't believe there is a killer on the loose.

Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson told The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/ZUzLdB ) that the bodies were found in the kitchen and living room of the residence in the Belden community.

Johnson says a Mississippi Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks officer found the bodies and said they were family members.

Johnson says the adults, who own the house, are between the ages of 40 and 60.

Johnson says authorities are notifying family of the victims and the identities should be released later Tuesday.
