TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Wednesday marks the third anniversary of what some would describe to be one of the most gruesome crimes in recent memory in Tallahassee.

On November 20, 2011 Tallahassee Police were called out to this single-story home at 908 Saddle Creek Run.

Inside, investigators found the bodies of Brandi Peters, 27, and her three young children: Twin 6-year-old girls Tamiyah and Taniyah, and their 3-year-old brother Javante Segura.

The crime is believed to be so gruesome that few details have ever been offered by investigators. Most of the court documents have been sealed.

Javante's father, Henry Segura, is facing the death penalty as he awaits trial. He's charged with four counts of First Degree Murder.

It wasn't until ten months after the murder that Segura was eventually arrested in Le Sueru County, Minnesota. That's where Tallahassee investigators say Segura feld to after murdering the family of four.

At the time of the murder, Peters was a single, stay-at-home mother.

Ciesly Timmons lived next to Peters. Just days after the murder in 2011 she told WTXL that she was devastated by the loss of who she considered a good friend.

"(Brandi) was a sweet person, she loved her kids," Timmons said in November of 2011. "She was my friend, we were together almost every day, I mean she was just a sweet person, nice."

Segura has a case mangement hearing scheduled for December 2013.
