HOLBROOK — Authorities plan to start removing about 70 pit bulls Monday from a ranch that was the scene of the worst mass murder in Oneida County history.
It was also the scene of both dog fighting — as evidenced by the scars on the pit bulls — and a marijuana growing operation.
The bodies of Brent L. Christensen, 62, his son Trent Jon Christensen, 32, and the son’s girlfriend Yavette Chivon Carter, 27, were found Friday afternoon inside the house on their remote ranch one mile west of Holbrook in western Oneida County. All three were shot to death.
Authorities are still searching for suspects and have made no arrests in connection with the crime.
Oneida County Sheriff Jeff Semrad said one of his deputies, a relative of the Christensens, made a visit to the ranch last year but saw no indication of the dog-fighting operation.
