Milwaukee -Police say Maurice Visor Jr., 6-weeks-old who was discoverd missing early Friday, was later found outside in a North side church around 1:40 p.m. Homicide investigators went to 836-838 S. 12th St., after the firefighters who responded to a fire in the upper duplex discovered Rachel Thompson, 24, and her two children, Torian Thompson-Carter, 4, and Jaden Thompson-Carter, 3, dead.
Police later reported Brittney M. Robertson, 19, was found dead around 6:15 p.m. in the Northwest of Milwaukee. She was fatally shot, and police investigators don't believe it was self inflicted. Robertson shared the duplex with Thompson who was found dead in the South side. Robertson had disappeared along with baby Maurice.
A neighbor said, she went out to see what was going on at about 5:30 a.m., and she saw emergency crews carry Thompson's body out and was laid near the building until an emergency ambulance arrived. The neighbor notice Thompson's body was lifeless.
Police Chief Edward Flynn was at the crime scene on Friday afternoon, and later at the 4:00 p.m. during a press conference he confirmed baby Maurice had been found alive. Flynn said, Thompson and her two siblings had been murdered before the upper duplex was set on fire, but Flynn would not elaborate further.
Police were searching for Brittney, who was considered in danger, but was later discovered dead. Two vehicles that were missing from the residence have been located, according to police.  
Chief Flynn confirmed Robertson was murdered and that she played a role in the homicides of Thompson and her two children. Flynn said, it was not a random act of murder, but committed by a small group of individuals who knew each other. Police are questioning 5 suspects connected to the four homicides, Flynn said.
Police homicide investigators continue their investigation into the homicides and arson investigation.
