It was a tranquil Monday evening in suburban Salisbury Township, Pennsylvania — 55 miles northwest of Philadelphia — when Valerie Freeman called 911 on Feb. 27, 1995.

What she'd see across the street in her brother and sister-in-law's home was anything but.

"She told us that her nephew, Erik Freeman, would usually stop by her house, basically across the street, every day after school and he had not stopped there. So she went looking for him," Salisbury Township Police Officer Jeffrey Renninger told "Killer Siblings," airing Fridaysat 8/7con Oxygen. "She told us she found him and the room was just covered with blood."

Police then decided to make a tactical entry to try and clear the home that Erik, 11, shared with his father, 54-year-old Dennis Freeman, mother, 48-year-old Brenda Freeman, and brothers, Bryan and David, 17 and 16, respectively.

But when they entered the first large room of the home, they saw no signs of forced entry and nothing seemed amiss ... until they noticed a bloody baseball bat lying against the far wall.

"We knew something horrible had happened,” said Renninger. “... The first room we made entry into was the master bedroom. The room was just covered with blood spatter. We found a male, obviously bludgeoned to death. We backed out of that room ... The next room we checked, we found an 11-year-old male laying half on the bed. It was obvious that he had been bludgeoned to death also."

They headed to the basement, where they found a woman dead.

"Because of the injuries, the victims are unrecognizable," retired FBI Special Agent Michael Tabman told "Killer Siblings." "But after speaking to Valerie Freeman, police believe these are the bodies of Dennis Freeman, his wife, Brenda Freeman and their son, 11-year-old Erik Freeman.”

What police didn't know was where the two eldest sons, Bryan and David Freeman, were.

At 7:00, the Lehigh County Coroner's office arrived.They determined that the woman had been stabbed multiple times and then bludgeoned with a barbell from the nearby weight rack.
