A statement released by Fort Hood Thursday night identified the deceased as Rouhad Ahamd Ezzeddine, 43, and daughters Leila Rouhad Ezzeddine, 9, and Zeinab Rouhad Ezzeddine, 4.

The three were found dead in the home of PFC Carla Santisteban, 33, who is assigned to 15th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. Fort Hood said Santisteban is the girls' mother.
