(Scroll down for video) Two women were brutally murdered while they were feeding the cats of their neighbor, according to police reports in New York.

New York Police said that a mother and her adult daughter died inside their neighbor’s home in upstate New York, where they had gone to feed cats, while their neighbor was out-of-town.

“It’s very possible that they surprised robbers or interrupted a robbery,” Major Mark Koss said outside the family home in Sodus, Wayne County. He said police found evidence that someone had entered the house.

The bodies of Terri Moulton, 54, and her daughter, Stacey Moulton, 30, were found by Terri’s husband, Charles, at 4:00 pm Sunday. Charles Moulton became worried and went looking for the women when, after three hours, they had not returned home from checking on their neighbor’s pets, Koss said.

Police did not say how the women were killed.

Koss also said that several small fires were started inside the house and burned out without causing damage.
Police expect that the owner of the house, Shawn Yager, will return to the town on Monday.

Troopers are seeking information from the public about a dark blue SUV, possibly a Mercury Mountaineer, which they said may have been involved in the killing.
