Fullerton Police Officers responded to the 400 block of S. Gilbert Street and found three adults, two males and a female, deceased in a residence. Officers also located two children inside the residence unharmed. A third juvenile, 17 year old Katlynn Goodwill Yost (2-11-1999), resides at the residence in which three adults where found deceased earlier today in the 400 block of S. Gilbert Street. Detectives have spent the day searching for Katlynn, but have been unsuccessful in locating her.

FULLERTON, CA – Police have found a 17-year-old girl who went missing after police found three bodies at the home where she lived in Southern California.

Fullerton Police officers on Sunday arrested Josh Acosta, 21 and Frank Felix, 25. They are facing murder charges, said Fullerton Police Spokesman John Radus.

He noted that a 17-year-old female was also in custody facing murder charges, but he said he could not identify her because of her age under state law.

The missing 17-year-old girl, Katlynn Goodwill Yost, was found safe and unharmed, Radus said. It was unclear Sunday if she was the same girl as the one in custody. . One of the suspects that has been arrested is believed to have some sort of relationship with Katlynn, Radus said.

On Saturday, police rushed to a house in Fullerton, which is about 30 miles from Los Angeles, after a child called dispatchers and said her parents had died, authorities said.

When they arrived, they found two men and one woman dead at the home, the Fullerton Police Department said in a statement. They also found two children, who were unharmed.

Authorities determined that a third minor, Yost, lived at the home, but was nowhere to be found.

Police did not release any information on how they are related, but a neighbor told the Orange County Register that the couple who lived there had three children — a teen and two others between ages 7 and 9.

Formal charges will be announced and presented to the district attorney on Monday, Radus said.
