Johnson says 55 year old Wiley Young, 46 year old Danica McCord and her daughter 13 year old Destiny McCord were found dead in the County Road 49 home around 8:30 this morning.
Johnson says after surveying the scene throughout the day investigators are certain the home was secured and that no one from the outside is responsible for the shooting.
