According to Kylie and Taylor's stepmother, Sonya Pifer, the sisters' biological father had been estranged from them for several years. He called Scott Plymale, the mother's boyfriend who then called 911 after discovering the women's lifeless bodies, police said. No arrests have been made.
A report via Fox8 told of Taylor studying fashion design at Kent State University and playing softball.
Fox8 reported that Kylie was a sophomore at Bowling Green State University, where she majored in biology and was involved in theater.
"Let police work take its course", he said.
Cleveland.com reported that North Royalton Detective Dave Loeding said the mother was stabbed at least once, but investigators haven't recovered a knife. "There's a lot of pathology and a lot of evidence that needs lab". Kylie would have turned 19 years old on Sunday.
