As the search continues for the person or persons responsible for a triple murder in West Nashville.
Earlier today two men were questioned about the killings on Maxon Avenue.
But just moments ago those men were cleared of any involvement with the crime.
Since police announced they wanted to speak with Justin McCoy and Kevin Tidwell neighbors here have been anxious to know what would come out of those interviews- we have not discovered what information police have learned but we do know those men had no involvement with this crime.
Police say based on the where the men hung out or lived and their tendencies, they were questioned about the murders of three family members.
Mother, 48 year old Deborah Sullivan, daughter 26 year old Wendy Sullivan were found dead in their home- and father, 56 year old Patrick Sullivan was found dead outside of the home in a detached shed Monday afternoon by their 28 year old daughter.
As police continue the investigation, those who knew the victims say they will be missed.
Vanessa Lindquist says, “She baked us goodies and they gave us a Christmas card and since then they have just been the neighbors that everybody wishes for.”
Investigators are expected to be out here again tomorrow searching for evidence- they are asking anyone with information call Crimestoppers.
We will continue to follow any developments on these stories.

Updated conservatorship statute effective July 1
May 21, 2013 12:49 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has signed into law revisions to the state conservatorship statute.
The law allows the court to appoint a conservator to manage the assets of a person a judge finds unable to handle his or her own affairs.
State Rep. Andrew Farmer, a Sevierville Republican, told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1183hjy ) the intent of the bill he sponsored in the House is to make sure people aren't being taken advantage of.
The bill sprang from a series of hearings statewide by the Tennessee Bar Association. They revealed there were no uniform procedures for placing a person's assets under a conservator on an emergency basis.
The changes take effect July 1.
