Early reports suggested all three had been shot, however, further investigation indicates the mother, Suzanne Taylor, had suffered a knife wound.

Police know of no possible suspects at this time.

Taylor Pifer, 21; and Kylie Pifer, 18, were found dead in a bedroom of their Cleveland-area home on June 11, according to WOIO.

Media and civilian bystanders gather outside the police blockade on Valley Forge Drive in Brunswick, Ohio. A woman who was in the house is now outside and unharmed.

A Kent State University student was one of three people found dead at a home in southern Cuyahoga County. He said he called Taylor's boyfriend, Scott Plymale, who then called 911.

Brunswick police were advising residents to remain inside their homes until an all clear is given.

No arrests have been made, but Loeding said police have been looking at persons of interest.

The university issued the following statement: "The Kent State University community is deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Taylor Pifer".

"Taylor was majoring in fashion design, while Kylie was involved in theater and was majoring in forensic science", the stepmother told WGHP-TV. Kylie would have turned 19 years old on Sunday.

Sonya Pifer told Cleveland19that the girls' father has been estranged from his daughters since they became adults.

Officers from the local police department and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation were on the scene overnight and into Monday morning collecting evidence.
