"After being in this business for 43 years, I can't describe the savagery of a person who would do this", said Troy Police Chief John Tedesco.
Neighbors interviewed by the Times Union said the basement apartment was most recently occupied by a woman, her two children and her partner, and that the home hosted frequent parties over the summer.
Though they have yet to make any arrests, Tedesco said that the full force of the police department will be employed against the suspect or suspects.
NY authorities are investigating the deaths of four people after the bodies were found in a basement apartment in Troy a day after Christmas. "I don't have the word". Officials say a property manager discovered the bodies early Tuesday afternoon in a basement apartment in the 2½-story house in the city's Lansingburgh section. "The emotions of a police officer are something you repress because there is a job to be done", Tedesco said, adding that no one involved in this case will ever forget it. Law enforcement sources told media outlets in Albany that the victims were all found tied up. It is unclear how long the bodies were in the home before they were discovered.

Investigators remained at the scene Wednesday.
The apartment where police uncovered the bodies is one of five in the building, which is located in a residential neighborhood just north of Albany. The victims, whose identities have not been released, were two adult women, ages 22 and 36, a 5-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy.
