The three children gunned down in their grandmother's home ten days ago in New Town are being laid to rest today. Hundreds of people filled the church for the funeral services in the community of Warsaw, where the children went to church before moving to New Town.

It was a somber day for the small communities of Warsaw and Minto, where people knew these three kids and still wonder how such a tragedy could have happened. The funeral for the children's Grandmother Martha Johnson, who was also shot and killed, was held Monday in the Fort Berthold Reservation community.

A New Town man who killed himself in the nearby town of Parshall the day of the slayings is considered a person of interest in the case.
