During a press conference, DPS Captain Craig Anderson shared that while Nikitina had been found in a garage, the 11-year-old was found in one of the home's bathrooms. 


Anderson also shared that following his arrest, Yamburg declined to be interviewed and invoked his right to an attorney.


'This is just a horrific tragedy,' Anderson said. 'Our hearts are broken for the family, for the victims and for all of their friends.' 

The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner is currently trying to determine a cause of death.   

Anderson added: 'These incidents are all tragic incidents, but especially when it involves a kid. Most of us all have kids of our own.'
