Police found three bodies – a woman and two men – Saturday in a home on Fort Wayne's north side.
The Allen County Coroner's Office has identified the two teens as Erin Jehl and Ryann Tipton.
They were both 19 years old and from Fort Wayne.
The suspected killer, a man whose death was ruled a suicide, has not been identified. The coroner's office hopes to confirm his identity today using fingerprints.
The deaths of Jehl and Tipton were declared homicides, the 21st and 22nd of the year for the county.
With the investigation of the crime scene completed Sunday evening, police are now trying to determine a motive, said officer Scott Tegtmeyer, a city police spokesman.
"We want to figure out the why: Why would a man do that?" he said.
Tegtmeyer expects police to share more information today.
Police could not confirm whether any of the three lived in the house.
A Facebook event has been created organizing a candlelight vigil for Tipton and Jehl from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday at Northrop High School, where it appears the teens attended, according to Facebook posts.
