Police ID 3 shot dead in South Cumminsville 'murder-suicide'

CINCINNATI -- Three people have been found shot dead in their South Cumminsville residence at the corner of Cass Avenue and Powers Street in an incident authorities called a "murder-suicide."

Police arrived at about 11:18 p.m. Thursday after a family member found two women and a man dead in the home. Police identified the dead as Julia Schroeder, 56, Rachel Milburn, 36, and Chester Milburn, 45.

Police believe that one of the dead was responsible for the three deaths, but did not say which one was their suspect.

No other information was immediately available. The investigation is ongoing.

Neighbors watched Friday as police investigated. 

"I'm a little sad, but I'm holding up strongly," neighbor Channtel Wright said.

Neighbor Breana Wright said she knew the family and knew them to have some family issues.

"I just didn't think it was going to go that far," she said.
