Topeka Police say they cannot release information after almost two weeks have passed after four people were killed in central Topeka.

“It’s important to keep the integrity of the investigation because we don’t want to release information to the public that potentially could compromise our ability to locate any person we may be looking for.”

Capt. Scott Conklin says they continue to pour resources into the investigation, but believe that the person or persons accused of the murders pose no danger to the public.

“We believe this is an isolated incident and the targeted people were the people that were inside the home and were the victims of this particular crime and the public at large is not at any risk for similar acts of violence.”

34-year-old Tamesha Lee was killed along with 43-year-old Eric Christopher Avery and 56-year-old Marvin Louis Woods at the home in the 1600 block of SW Central Park Ave. on December 1st.

45-year-old Carla Jean Avery, Eric Avery’s sister and Mr. Woods’ ex-wife, was found shot behind a shopping center that same day which prompted the search of the home on Central Park.

Carla Jean Avery later died at a local hospital.

Police and CrimeStoppers are offering an $8,000.00 reward for information leading to an arrest in this case.
