Notice of the three women's deaths came after the boyfriend of the eldest daughter arrived at the family home Sunday night at 8pm to find the three victims slain in the bedroom.
Police identified the victims as 45-year-old Suzanne Taylor and her daughters, 21-year-old Taylor Pifer and 18-year-old Kylie Pifer. Police say they are investigating the case as a triple homicide. Dave Loeding told reporters.
Initially cops said they had been shot to death.
Police were reported by the AP on Sunday as saying the women apparently suffered gunshot wounds, but investigators haven't released the cause of death.
A motive for the shooting remains unclear.
The university issued the following statement: "The Kent State University community is deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Taylor Pifer".

The Scottish Daily Telegraph's editor Alan Cochrane said: "The story was impeccably sourced and I stand by every word". The reports were seen as a sign that the party's Scottish leader was seeking to assert the influence of her MPs.
A woman who says she was the stepmother of the two sisters told WOIO Kylie attended Bowling Green College and Taylor attended Kent State University.
No arrests had been made as of press time.
Police have not named a suspect or person of interest, but have said they are questioning several people while they gather leads.
"Let police work take its course", he said. "I can not tell you on the others because there's not a visible sign of how death occurred", said North Royalton Det. I love and miss you Taylor and Suzanne. "There's a lot of pathology and a lot of evidence that needs lab".
A Cleveland 19 reporter had come in contact with the man via Facebook earlier in the day, as a result of her reporting on the story.
