HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Time and time again, Henrico Police responded to the Brissette home located on Forge Road in a quiet Henrico neighborhood.

Since 2006, Henrico Police records show they visited the home for 30 different calls, including drunk/disorderly, suspicious situation, domestic, mental subject, drugs, animal cruelty/neglect, missing person and, on Sunday, stabbing/gunshot.

“It worries me that somebody lived in the neighborhood that would do that,” a neighbor said.

Neighbors struggled to come to terms with the death of Martha and Henry Brissette.

Martha B. Brissette, age 56, and her husband Henry J. Brissette III, age 59, were found murdered on Easter Sunday

Henrico Police said their son, William Roy Brissette, shot them both on Easter Sunday.

Police charged him with two counts of second-degree murder.

Neighbors said they trio lived together in the home.

“The boy, I don’t know what happened to him,” a neighbor said.

Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor said William Brissette was involved with Henrico Mental Health in the past, and police confirmed they were asked to assist Norfolk Police and Old Dominion University with incidents involving the Brissette home.

Court records in Norfolk, Virginia, show he was found guilty of stalking a young woman there back in March of 2013.

Then in December of 2013, court records show he violated a protective order she took out against him.

A spokesperson for ODU said he was never a student there.

CBS 6 reporter Melissa Hipolit spoke with a  family member of Brissett Monday.

He said the family does not have a comment at this time.
