LOOMIS, Calif. (CBS13/AP) – Two people have been detained for questioning in connection with a triple homicide in thePlacerCounty community of Loomis.

Sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Alfredo Guitron says the three victims were found after a family member entered the home around 10 a.m. Saturday and found 47-year-old Nanette Florance dead inside.

Guitron says 48-year-old Lawrence Fay Jr. was found moments later dead outside the home.

A third victim, 46-year-old John Camara, was found severely injured outside the home.

Camara was taken to a hospital, where he died Saturday night.

All three victims suffered what Guitron described as “trauma to the head,” though the exact cause of the deaths has not been determined.

Guitron says Camara and Fay lived in the home, while Florance would stay at the house periodically.

Investigators say here were no signs of forced entry to the home. The attack was not believed to be random, though detectives have not determined a motive.

Deputies confirmed Sunday evening that two people believed to have information on the incident were detained for questioning, but have not placed them under arrest or referred to them as suspects.
