On 24 September 2016, three people were found dead within their own home in Fullerton, California. Two suspects have been identified as Josh Acosta, 21, and Frank Felix, 25. Their arraignment is scheduled for 28 October.

  Another suspect was unable to be identified due to her age. As a seventeen-year-old minor, her name could not be released, according to California law.

The victims were identified as Jennifer Goodwill-Yost, 39, Christopher Yost, 34, and Arthur William Boucher, 28. The victims were said to have died from bullet wounds to the head. Acosta was a soldier stationed at Fort Irwin. Authorities suspect that he is the one responsible for firing the shotgun used in the homicide,

Authorities responded to a call around 8:21 a.m. from a child reporting that her parents were dead. When officers arrived on the scene, they found two other children, aged 6 and 9, within the house, unharmed. One Katlynn Yost, 17, was missing from the household.

She was later found unharmed. It is not clear whether she is the unidentified juvenile suspect.

Authorities have stated that there is not yet a clear motive to the triple homicide; however, it is suspected that the victims were intentionally targeted.

“The two men. and possibly the daughter. might have killed the victims because of a fault in their personal connections,” junior Sebastian Kukielka said.

One of the suspects, Felix, may have been romantically involved with Katlynn Yost, the missing daughter. It was reported by a family friend of the Yosts that Jennifer Goodwill-Yost feared Felix’s influence on her daughter.
