Three men shot execution-style in a house in Birmingham, Alabama have now been identified.

The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office has identified the victims as Willie Cornelius Washington, 35, Johnny Kordara Griffin, 24 and Korde Lorodius Turner, 24. All were identified by family members, said Chief Deputy Coroner Bill Yates.

The bodies were found inside the home at 457 3rd Street North at 12:05 p.m. Monday. They were officially pronounced dead at 12:58 p.m., according to al.com.

al.com writes that Washington was found dead on the floor just inside the front door where it appears he had been sleeping prior to his death. He was lying on a pillow with a blanket on top of him. Griffin and Turner were found lying on couches. Police recovered all three bullets underneath each of the victims, writes al.com.

In 2013, Turner was acquitted for the 2009 murder of another man.  On April 10, 2009, Leroy “Little Fred” Yarbrough was shot in the chest while in the 300 block of Fourth Terrace North in Smithfield.  Turner admitted to shooting Yarbrough in self-defense, and that was his only arrest, according to al.com.

No arrests have been made in the killings, said Birmingham police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards. Police are looking into several tips.
