"Daddy's dead, daddy's dead," child says

NEWTON FALLS

Newton Falls police are looking for two men in a white Dodge Intrepid, who they believe were involved in a triple homicide in the city today.

Police Chief John Kuivila said two males and a female were found dead at 72 Trumbull Court, around noon. Two are juveniles — one male, one female.

They had been shot to death, he said during a news conference this afternoon.

The Intrepid has a white spoiler on the back. The suspects are in their early 20s.

The chief said one of the victims called 911 before dying.

The investigation is just beginning.

Though police say two juveniles and one adult were killed, the next door neighbor says it was her brother, Rikki Cogley; his wife Kathy; and their 15-year-old son Everett.

Two young boys survived, said the neighbor, Tina Brazzon.

She is Rikki Cogley’s sister. She said her 5-year-old nephew,also named Rikki, came next door and said, “Daddy’s dead, daddy’s dead.”
