White said the 57-year-old woman’s family was planning to go to the home for dinner. The victims were found at about 4 p.m. after the woman’s other daughter could not reach her and went to the home. Police said after calling 911, the daughter’s husband forced entry and discovered the bodies.
Police said McDonald, who lived at the home, is the woman’s husband but not the father of the 13-year-old, who was disabled. He was last seen leaving the home in a gray Buick Lecurne with the license plate number EKY4074.
“We want to get this person off of the street, and if he’s not the suspect, we certainly want to find out what happened to him and begin to track the suspect,” White said.
