Four people were murdered in Clarksburg Friday morning including a father and son who were simply walking door to door delivering the newspaper.
Friday afternoon, City Officials held a press conference where they said investigators are charging Sydney Muller, 27, with four counts of first degree murder. They found him in Marion County about an hour after the incident happened.
The four people who were murdered was Christopher Hart, Todd Amos, Freddy Swiger, and Fred Swiger.
Harrison County Prosecuting Attorney Joe Shaffer said this was a drug related incident. And Christopher Hart's brother said it was over some kind of money debt. 5 News learned it was over $10,000 from a past drug deal.
One neighbor told 5 News they've had a problem with this one house in particular on Locust Avenue. This man said he has made calls to the police multiple times about drug related incidents there. Friday at the press conference, officials confirmed there has been drug activity there.
"I come outside about 5:30 in the morning. We come out on the street and see nothing but police lights. Over half the Clarksburg PD was up here at the top of our hill," said Randy Jones, Clarksburg Resident.
And that was proven. Neighbors put roses on the road where both people died.
This incident is still under investigation.
