Detectives Say Triple Murder In Santa Barbara County May Have Been Targeted Attack

Mar 24, 2016

Detectives now say they don't think a triple murder in Santa Barbara County was a random attack.

Sheriff's deputies were called to the 4600 block of Greenhill Way in Goleta at around 5:30 last night when someone asked them to check up on the welfare of the residents. The bodies of three people were found.

The victims have been identified, but aren't being released yet.

Sheriff's Office officials say they have investigators working around the clock on what they are calling a "horrific" crime.

County, and state crime scene investigators are still on scene, gathering evidence. There's no word on a possible motive for the killings.
