Police in Cleveland, Ohio, have been called out for their inability to solve a quadruple homicide that involved multiple victims in a single home.
A new Fox News report says authorities have been caught in a tight spot with little time to gather evidence.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that in one of the deaths, police found an empty apartment with a door open.
The next day, a neighbor who was also home to a family of four found the body of a woman who was shot twice.
A month later, authorities were able to identify the suspect in the shooting, identified as Robert Lewis Dear, who lived in the same apartment.
The woman’s body was found outside the building.
The other two victims, a 19-year-old man and a 29-year old man, were also shot.
Dear was arrested a few days after the first slaying, but authorities have yet to determine if he was behind the other killings.
Police have said he has no known connection to the previous two.
