Three family members at two different residences were found dead in Silver Springs Saturday night.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the homicides of local residents Rebecca Driver, 46, Frank Evans, 67 and Coral Evan, 68, all of Silver Springs.

According to a press release, the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office said they responded at 8:17 p.m. to a residence on the 2800 block of Tonopah Avenue in Silver Springs for a medical call. Upon arrival, Sheriff’s Deputies found a 46 year old woman — later identified as Driver — dead.

Through the course of their investigation, Sheriff’s Deputies obtained information regarding the local family of the deceased. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the family’s residence on 3000 block of East Third Street in Silver Springs to conduct a next-of-kin notification. When they arrived at the residence Sheriff’s Deputies discovered two additional people dead, both identified as Coral and Frank Driver.

At this time, the incidents are being investigated as a homicide, though Sheriff Al McNeil has deemed it an isolated incident.

McNeil stated at no time was there a threat to the community.

No information has been given on a possible suspect, though, according to reports, Carson City Sheriff’s deputies were attempting to locate a suspect vehicle near Deer Run Road on Sunday morning.

McNeil said this case remains a high priority for the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office and detectives are aggressively working possible leads and all leads outside the area.
