Investigation Continues Into Double Murder

Kentucky State Police have yet to name a suspect in the shooting deaths of a mother and grandmother whom three children found dead Tuesday after hiding overnight from their killer.

Police identified the victims as Tracy Burke, 31, and Karen Comer, 53. Troopers said there was no sign of domestic violence or forced entry at the killing scene.

Court documents obtained by a Louisville television station show Burke died shortly before finalizing a rocky divorce. Her hearing was set for Friday morning.

Police have not named Brent Burke as a suspect. They said they are questioning him and that he has cooperated with the investigation so far.Investigators said Burke's first ex-husband, a soldier based in Ft. Lewis, Wash. has been cleared of suspicion in the killings.
