  • The community is in shock this morning as details become available of two children and their father brutally murdered Thursday night. Crime tape surrounds a home decorated for Christmas at 1032 South 11th St. Police were called to the home Thursday evening shortly after 8 p.m. where an officer found three dead inside the home. An infant, also in the home at the time of the killings, was apparently unharmed. Police were only beginning to release details at press time this morning. According to an early police report on file with Clark County officials, the three victims have been identified but the names of the two children are not being immediately released. Dead is Bobby Jean Galbraith, 40, who was known to family and friends as "Chino." Also dead are two girls who lived at the home, ages 6 and 4. According to the police report, Anna Galbraith, 29, mother of the girls, called 911 at 8:11 p.m. She reportedly said she had returned home to find two children dead in her home. Sgt. Jason "Shorty" Jackson responded to the call and met Anna Galbraith in the yard of the home. According to Jackson's report, Anna Galbraith remained in the yard with the second officer to arrive at the scene, Deputy Nathan McAnally of the Clark County Sheriff's Office, while Jackson entered the home. Jackson reported that he walked through the home and discovered an adult male, later identified as "Chino" Galbraith, dead in the home. Jackson also stated that the two girls were already dead as well. "An infant was present but uninjured," according to Watson's report.  Jackson called for Clark County Sheriff Jason Watson who arrived a few minutes later. According to the report, Jackson did not locate any suspects at the residence and turned the investigation over to Watson. Watson has not as yet released any details as to why the murders occurred though rumors are running rampant through the town.
