La Sierra South, California: Triple homicide investigation is underway after 3 people were found dead inside house fire on Friday, November 25th, 2022 along the 11200 block of Price Court.
According to Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback, officers from the Riverside Police Department conducted a welfare check at the home between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. PT; regarding some sort of disturbance that was reported between a man and a woman near a vehicle.
Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback said that before officers arrived and shortly after that call, some calls came into our dispatch center regarding a fire or smoke being seen at the same location.
At 11:01 a.m. PT, firefighters from the Riverside Fire Department responded to the scene, including initial responses from Engine 1, Engine 2, Engine 3, Engine 5, Engine 7, Engine 8, Engine 10, Engine 12, Fire Battalion 1 and Fire Battalion 2, along with Investigator 1, Investigator 6 and Investigator 9, and American Medical Response 1 and American Medical Response 346.
When firefighters arrived saw smoke and flames coming from the front of the house, and were alerted that someone might be inside, and quickly searched the house fire.
Few minutes later, firefighters found 3 people in a room, pulled them out of the house fire, and were pronounced dead.
“They (firefighters) notified our officers they found 3 people deceased inside the house,” said Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback.
The names of the victims have not yet been released, and there’s also no information regarding a suspect or suspects.
According to Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback, “We do believe they are victims of a homicide, but can’t say other than that.”
