Federal investigators said there were no visible signs of a struggle or a fight.
Investigators recovered fibers and unidentified hairs at the scene, per the doc.
FBI agents also said the killer would have been covered in the victims’ blood, according to the search warrant.

Libby’s older sister Kelsi, 21, said she hopes the culprit is “scared”.
She told The Sun: “I hope he is listening to all of these and he’s trying to figure out a way to keep hidden, but he should know he can’t stay hidden anymore.
“Law enforcement is going to continue looking for him. And he should be scared.”
