Warrant served in E. Hartford homicide probe

Police investigating a Thanksgiving Day triple homicide in East Hartford say the children of one victim are now considered "persons of interest" after they refused to cooperate with investigators.

The Hartford Courant reports that police serving a search warrant on the Manchester home of Brett and Candice Bednarz left the scene Wednesday afternoon with boxes of items named in the warrant. They did not arrest anyone.

The Bednarzes are brother and sister, and the children of 74-year-old Beverly Therrien, one of three people found dead in the Naomi Drive home on Nov. 25.

The other victims were 53-year-old Michael Ramsey and 60-year-old Pamela Johns. Police say Johns had recently moved into Therrien's home to care for her.

Authorities said all three died of blunt force trauma that did not appear random, though the motive is unclear.
