Wentworth, NC -- A killer is still out there.

A home invasion left Troy and LaDonna French dead early Saturday morning.

The only survivor was the daughter, Whitley French.

According to warrants investigators took two shotguns and a rifle.

They also seized a gun box, but the paperwork says the box was empty. Missing was a nine millimeter handgun.

GTCC Criminal Justice Associate Professor Andy Russell said deputies are leaving no stone unturned.

"You want to eliminate weapons that may be on the scene as being possible weapons used in the crime. Just because you need to. Its good police work to eliminate anything that could be used as a weapon on the scene as well as well as to define the weapon if someone took it with them," he stated. 

Investigators also found and seized: eight spent cartridge casings, four bullet projectiles, one partial projectile case, and one lead projectile.

All typical our expert says in helping lead detectives to a weapon or eliminate one.

According to the warrants, computers and a cell phone were also confiscated.

They stated others may have known Whitley's whereabouts because she texted her boyfriend and posted where she was on social networking sites.
