DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) — Police believe three people found dead in a home in Oklahoma are a newspaper publisher, his wife and daughter.

Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said Tuesday that autopsy results are still pending, but police think the bodies are those of John Hruby, his wife, Tinker, and their daughter, Katherine.

Ford said the case is being investigated as a triple homicide. He said there are no suspects in custody and the motive is not known.

He declined to say how the Hrubys are believed to have died.

Ford said the bodies were found Monday by the family housekeeper, who called police.

John Hruby was the publisher of The Marlow Review in Marlow. The newspaper's website asked for prayers following the family's deaths.
