The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office identified the victims as 32-year-old Precious Taste and 16-year-old Deante Johnson.

As reported on News Center 7 at 6:00, social media posts remembering the pregnant mother also pay tribute to the second victim, 16-year-old Deante Johnson.

Police have not said a lot about the teen, or clearly defined his relationship to the Taste family.

Police believe when Cunigan climbed through a side window to force his way in, the teen was very close.

Officers discovered Johnson and Taste both shot and killed.

Investigators said Taste and Cunigan were the parents of twin four-year-olds, also in the house during the attack.

Taste was four months pregnant, and they believe Cunigan was the father.

Taste’s family has urged Cunigan to turn himself in.

Police say, at the time of the crime he did have very distinctive red tinted dreadlock tips in front and back.

They also warn people he is armed and dangerous.

Cunigan has been rumored to be hiding in Springfield.

Police are actively looking across the area and say if you spot Cunigan, do not approach him, simply call police or dial 911.
