Three adults found dead in a eastern Idaho pot house slaying and now police are trying to put together leads in a case that went cold after Easter.

Authorities are investigation the shooting deaths of Yavette Chivon Carter, 27, Trent Jon Christensen, 32, and Brent L. Christensen, 61 whose bodies were found at a house which was being used to grow thousands of dollars of marijuana.

Oneida County Sheriff Jeff Semrad told the Idaho State Journal the victims are a father, his son and the son’s girlfriend.

The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office reports that the deaths took place sometime between Thursday afternoon and evening by someone who had some type of relationship with the victims. A man discovered the bodies on Friday outside of Holbrook when he went to the property to pick up a dog.

A 2-month-old baby girl was found under the arm of Carter. In addition, her 2-year-old sister was found sitting on the steps outside of the house. Both were unharmed and turned over to their grandmother.

There were approximately 70 pit bulls chained up at the property. Police said the dogs were being raised for sale and for fighting.

Police do not believe it is a murder-suicide and are hunting for the killer in what was a ‘straight up homicide,’ Sheriff Jeff Semrad told KSL.com.

The Oneida County Sheriff’s Department said that they believe the shooter knew the three adults and are looking for someone in a red truck.

They are looking to speak with anyone who attended an Easter party held at the home on March 31.
