Rockport man appears in court in Massachusetts for murder charges

ROCKPORT, ME AND AYER, MA - A 22 year old man from Rockport is accused of murdering 4 people in Massachusetts.

Orion Krause appeared before a judge today and was ordered to undergo a psychological examination.

 

Authorities believe he used a baseball bat Friday to murder his mother, his grandparents and a home health care worker who was caring for his grandparents.

 

Officials said they all died from blunt force trauma.

 

A shock to people back in the Rockport area where Krause attended the local high school and was known as a gentle person.

 

The victims were identified as Frank Darby Lackey III, 89; Elizabeth Lackey, 85; Elizabeth Buffy Krause, 60; and Bertha Mae Parker, 68.

 

A neighbor told reporters Krause was nude and bloody Friday when he showed up at the persons door to say he had murdered four people and needed help.

 

A motive for the alleged crime is still unclear.

 

Krause will be held without bail pending a competency hearing.
