WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - A mother and her child from Worcester have been identified as two of three people found dead in a home in Connecticut earlier this week. 

State police said they responded to a house in Brooklyn, Conn. following a report of a suspicious incident around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

Police said they arrived to find the bodies of two adults and a child inside. Police later identified Lury Pizarro, 33, and her three year old son Emmanuel as two of the victims. They had not publicly named the third victim as of Friday morning.

Police have called the deaths “suspicious,” though they’ve added that the public is not in danger. 

Lury Pizarro moved to Connecticut roughly four months ago with Emmanuel, according to her stepfather, Daniel Mendez. The two were hoping to come back home to Worcester, Mendez said.

 “She was loving, she got along with everybody and everybody got along with her, she was a bright person, a great daughter,” Mendez said of Lury. 

As the family now waits for answers, Mendez said he wants people to know how much joy Lury and Emmanuel brought into their lives.

“I want people to remember them the way they were,” Mendez said.

“Please keep us in your prayers, because it’s not easy to go through this,” he continued.

An investigation was ongoing as of Thursday afternoon. Police have asked anyone with information to contact detective Ethan Tanksley by email at ethan.tanksley@ct.gov.

Lury and Emmanuel’s family has started a GoFundMe fundraiser to help with funeral expenses.
