Springfield, Mo.- Authorities have released the names of three people who were found murdered at a pay by the week motel on the north side of the city yesterday (11-16-14.)
Springfield police officers responded to room 149 at the Economy Inn at 2555 N. Glenstone Avenue about 7:45 a.m. after a 911 caller indicated they found several individuals inside the room who appeared to be injured. When officers arrived, they found three people deceased and one man clinging to life.
Christopher Freeman remains in critical condition
Lt. Culley Wilson said yesterday that it appeared that Lewis D. Green, 44; Danielle J. Keyes, 29; and Trevor L. Fantroy, 43, were shot to death. The surviving victim, Christopher K. Freeman, 24, remains in critical condition at a local hospital. All of the victims “resided” in Springfield, according to a news release.
City spokesperson Cora Scott says authorities “are still attempting to contact family members of Trevor Fantroy.”
Investigators believe a handgun was used in the murders, but a weapon was not recovered at the crime scene, according to Wilson. “Detectives have been interviewing witnesses and following up on leads in an attempt to identify and locate those responsible,” said Scott.
The Greene County Medical Examiner conducted autopsies on the victims Sunday to determine an official cause of death, according to Scott.
