OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The family of a man who was among three people found slain in an Oklahoma City home is pleading for help solving the case.

Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty joined members of Elijah Mothershed's family Wednesday at a news conference seeking help from the public for clues to the killings .

The bodies of Mothershed, Carnesha Patrice Powell and Powell's 15-year-old daughter, Roshawna Stevens, were discovered Monday.

Citty says police do not have a motive or a suspect in the case. He urged anyone with information about the killings to come forward.

Mothershed was the owner of Cannabis Aid, one of hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries licensed since Oklahoma voters approved medical cannabis in June . He also founded a mentorship program that helped young men escape their criminal pasts.
