Katy Mae Starks-Acosta told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the female found dead was her longtime friend, Michelle Williams.

“My heart hurt so bad,” Starks-Acosta wrote in a Facebook message to the outlet. “It’s still unbelievable.”

“We want justice,” she added.

“Citizens of our community had concerns with the occupants that resided there,” Assistant Chief Paul Formolo said, the Journal Sentinel reported. “It's a normal call for us to respond to. We do it all the time.”

Acting Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson called the killings "horrific."

“First, I offer my condolences to the families and friends of the victims. Whatever the circumstances, we must share the grief of those who have lost loved ones," Johnson said.

“It is important not to feel numbed by the ongoing violence in our community,” he continued. “A horrible crime has again occurred, and it is not a movie or a fictional account. These victims died in our city, in one of our neighborhoods.”

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (414) 224-TIPS or the Milwaukee Police Department at (414) 935-7360.
