Triple Homicide Investigation Ongoing In Eastern Idaho
HOLBROOK, Idaho (AP) — Authorities in eastern Idaho are investigating the shooting deaths of two men and a woman whose bodies were found in a home that contained a marijuana grow operation. The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office says the bodies were discovered Friday outside Holbrook and authorities believe the three were slain Thursday by someone who had a relationship with the victims.
Authorities said a 2-month-old was found under the arm of one of the victims — 27-year-old Yavette Chivon Carter. A 2-year-old was also found unharmed and both children have been turned over to relatives. About 70 pit bulls were also found. Police said the dogs were being raised for sale and for fighting.
The other two victims were identified Saturday as 61-year-old Brent L. Christensen and his 32-year-old son Trent Jon Christensen. Oneida County Sheriff Jeff Semrad told the Idaho State Journal Carter and the younger Christensen were in a relationship.
