Police say they were called to a residence on February 13 where they found Abril Mills, 28, and Jerhonda Edwards, 29, dead with both having suffered multiple gunshot injuries.

During an investigation, police say they learned the double homicide was related to a theft reported on February 3, where Tyra Parker, a driver for an ATM money delivery company, reported that over $200,000 had been stolen from her delivery vehicle while on her route in Lorain.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Kurt Graupmann at 440-204-2105 or Lorain Police at 440-204-2100.
