The Boulder County Sheriff's Office is still trying to determine if the motive behind a triple homicide in Coal Creek Canyon is related in any way to evidence of suspected drug activity found at the home.

The bodies of Wallace White, 54, Kelly Sloat-White, 56 and Emory Fraker, 39, were found by sheriff's deputies in a home at 800 Divide View Drive on Saturday after a friend who hadn't seen them requested a welfare check.

White and Sloat-White are married and are the owners of the house, and Fraker, of Broomfield, was Wallace's brother.

Investigators are treating the case as a triple homicide, but no suspect or suspects have been identified in the case.

While investigators said that the house was "specifically targeted," no information about a possible motive has been released. There was evidence of drug activity at the house, but officials said it has not yet been determined if that played a factor in the homicides.

"We're still actively working to see if drug activity is related to the motive," said Boulder County sheriff's Cmdr. Mike Wagner. "At this point, no conclusions to motive have been made."

A CBS 4 report cites "neighbors" who said the Whites were growing marijuana, and state records show Sloate-White had applied for the business name "420 Pharms LLC."

Wagner said he could not comment on if the drug activity was related to marijuana or on any other specifics of the drug activity because its role in the case is still being examined.

"We don't want to release any information that could compromise the investigation," Wagner said.

Investigators have completed their initial evidence collection, but the house will remain closed off and in police custody for the foreseeable future.

"The detectives and investigators expect that additional crime scene processing is going to be needed throughout the week," Wagner said.
