Coroner identifies 4 killed in Butler County apartment


CINCINNATI (AP) — A coroner has identified the four family members killed in an apartment in a suburban Ohio community and says they all died from gunshot wounds.

Dr. Lisa Mannix didn’t release other details Tuesday on the autopsy results in Butler County.

Members of a nearby Sikh temple say the victims worshipped there. The Indian consulate says it is keeping in close touch with West Chester Township police, family members and the community.

Authorities say they don’t believe the slayings were a hate crime, but haven’t identified any suspects.

Divers returned Tuesday to a pond near the apartment as part of a property-wide search for clues.
