SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -

A Springfield father is speaking out after the sudden death of his daughter.

Tamesha Lee was one of four people found dead inside a home in Topeka, Kansas.

Police are following up on some tips, but they have no one in custody.
That offers little relief for the Lee family who not only lost their only daughter, but also suffered another loss within the same week.

"My daughter was brutally murdered. She was shot in the head," says Paul Lee.

"It's been a little over a week now since Tamesha Lee and two other people were found dead inside a house on Central Park in Topeka. Paul says he spoke to his daughter, Tamesha, 15 minutes before she lost her life.

"I didn't know what to do. I felt like taking my own life, but i've got too much else that I've got to do before then," he says.

Lee and his wife drove from Springfield to Kansas to make funeral arrangements for Tamesha. When they were there, Lee says he got a phone call from the fire marshal in Springfield. It wasn't good news. His home went up in flames. They lost everything.

"This is our home, so we have nothing. We don't have nothing at all," he says.

The Lees lived here for five years and celebrated many holidays, but this year will be different.

"There's no Christmas. In my heart, we have nothing. We have our lives, our daughter does not," he says.

We asked him how he was staying so strong. Paul said he's not. "This is a facade. I'm holding everything in and I've been searching for the killers with no luck so far."

Lee says The Red Cross has put them up at a local hotel until Monday. After that, they're unsure where they're going to go.

"I'm hurting inside. Nobody knows how bad I'm hurting. I'm trying to keep my head up and hope god brings us through," he says.
