Triple Murder Investigation: Suspect and Victim May Have Had Relationship

New details have emerged in the Janesville triple murder case.

An affidavitt just released today, seems to suggest that suspect James Koepp had a personal relationship with one of the victims.

The information came about after an affidavitt revealed two phone conversations.

According to the affidavitt, the suspect, James Koepp, made a couple of phone calls.

In the first, Koepp intended to call one the detectives.

In the second call, he seemed to come across the detective by mistake.

The first call came last Tuesday afternoon, when Koepp was supposed to show up at the Rock county sheriff's department for an interview about the murders.

In that call, the affidavitt says Koepp was crying and seemed intoxicated when he told the detective he didn't commit the murder and that if he came forward for the interview, he would lose his wife.

The second phone call came later that afternoon when the same detective was at Koepp's home talking with his wife.

The affidavitt says Koepp called his wife, but the detective took the call and, despite identifying himself as a detective, Koepp started speaking to him as if the detective was his wife.

Saying things like "I love you. I'm sorry, It only happened once and I f----- you over."

The Rock county sheriff wouldn't comment on what this means to the case today.

As of right now, Koepp is still behind bars on $60,000 bond for a drunk driving arrest.

Authorities say they are waiting for more evidence to be analyzed before any additional charges would come down.
