Albemarle police are continuing to investigate the murder-suicide on Stony Point Road Tuesday night. They believe 19-year-old Noah Philip Romando killed his mother and two younger siblings.
Elizabeth Walton and two of her children were found dead late Tuesday night. Emergency crews took another child to the hospital where he later died.
Police are tight-lipped about what led to their findings that 19-year-old Noah Romando pulled the trigger.
Students have created a memorial at Albemarle High School for Lily, who attended the school last year. She was a photographer so the memorial features many of her pictures and those others took of her.
Noah, also attended Albemarle High School and recently graduated.
Albemarle High School plans to have a memorial ceremony at their football game Friday night. They will have a moment of silence for the family, release four balloons, one for each person who died, and students will pass around white ribbons for people in the audience.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been made, but people from the family's church say they had such a big turnout at the prayer ceremony that they will likely have to hold funeral services at a much bigger venue.
