Investigators are working to determine the relationship between Crowell,22, the boy, and the two homicide victims.

Parrillo said that the police don’t know whether Crowell was living in the home, was a guest or was uninvited.

Parrillo said authorities were also trying to obtain a photograph of Isiah Perez, “We don’t have a picture; we don’t have any identification; we don’t have anything at this time.”
