“The victims - sounds like they all three did know the suspect, Daniel Alvey,” EPD Sgt. Anna Gray said. “At this time, they don’t have a motive per se. But after speaking with Alvey, there is someone else that they would like to speak with that could be involved.”

Officials say that person was later identified as 25-year-old Samuel Huggler.
