MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The family of one of the victims in a triple homicide is calling for justice.

It's been nearly three days since three people were found shot to death in North Memphis in the Douglass community, and there's been no word of any arrests.

"It's just hard right now. You got three people, and I feel sorry for their families too," said an emotional Elesha Malone outside of the home where his son, 35-year-old Anthony Isom, was killed.

Police haven't released a ton of information but did say Isom, along with 28-year-old Chasity Springfield and 34-year-old Michael Glover, were found dead in a home on Lake Grove Street early Saturday morning.

"I think it was someone that he knew because he opened the front door for them," explained Malone.

Malone described his son as giving, and always willing to help those who needed a hand.

"He was free hearted. Just like me. He didn't mind sharing and helping people out."

He said Isom grew up in the community, was well known, and leaves behind several children.

"He was known from Orange Mound to Frayser. He was known everywhere," he said.

Crime scene tape was still outside the home, along with flowers and remnants of candles as the neighborhood has spent the last few days mourning the dead.

A small memorial with Isom's picture has been created on a telephone pole.

On Monday, Isom's family gathered to remove belongings from the house. His younger brother Elijah Isom said all he can think about is making sure his brother's killer is held accountable.

"I just want justice for my family, so we don't have to look over our shoulder. I just want justice," said Isom.

Family and friends are now coming together to create a fund to help with burial expenses.
