When they arrived on scene they found three people dead and a fourth person seriously injured.
Sheriff Jim Hammond said there are so many unanswered questions that his office is asking if anyone saw or heard anything related to the case to contact authorities.
He also talked about how unusual it is investigate a crime scene in which three people are found dead.
"The last time I remember three fatalities and of course most of the public would remember the Signal Mounting killings a number of years ago. That's when we had three individuals killed. Certainly not circumstances similar to this or it would appear but it's highly unusual to get three confirmed deaths in one crime situation," Hammond said.
