Three people bludgeoned to death in bloody massacre, suspect on the loose: Police

Three people were found dead overnight and a fourth person was seriously injured after an apparent rampage at a boarding house in Georgia, WMAZ-TV reports.

Authorities were called around 8 p.m. Saturday for a report of people down at a home in Macon, Georgia, about 85 miles southeast of Atlanta.

“This is a tragic and horrific kind of situation, but from the information that we’re getting, it’s one of those impulse kind of things,” Bibb County Sheriff David Davis told WMAZ-TV. “There’s some type of disagreement that resulted in this horrific night.”

Davis told the television station that deputies found a man and woman dead inside the home who had been “bludgeoned” to death.

The victims were identified as 51-year-old Rick Corneilious and 46-year-old Colene Koerner.

Another woman who was seriously injured at the residence was being treated at an area hospital and was listed in serious condition, according to the television station.

On Sunday morning, investigators also found the body of the homeowner, 73-year-old Chester Novak, near the home. He is believed to have died from blunt force trauma.

Authorities have identified a person of interest in the case as 51-year-old Ronald Green, who is believed to have lived in the home, which is a boarding-type house. Authorities believe the killings were spurred by a conflict between those killed and Green.

Green is approximately 5-feet, 7-inches tall and weighs about 190 pounds, according to WMGT-TV.

This weekend’s incident was the second triple homicide in the county this year, WMAZ-TV reports.

To report information about the case, including Green’s location, call police at 478-751-7500.
