ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - A week after three bodies were found in a shed in the woods in Florida, Orange County deputies drained a retention pond near the scene Thursday, and continued to search for a person of interest in the triple homicide, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

According to the station, deputies are looking for Leonard Lewis, 47, after police recovered the bodies of 65-year-old Richard Button, 57-year-old Todd Lemme and 54-year-old Deborah Watson last week in Orange County.

Lewis is reportedly the ex-boyfriend of one of the victims. The station reports that the victims lived a transient lifestyle and made their home together in a barn near where their bodies were found.

Another person of interest, 60-year-old David Emmons, has been cleared after questioning by authorities, reports WKMG. However, deputies said he is still an essential part of the investigation.

Authorities have not commented on a possible motive in the case.
