PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities continued to search for suspects Wednesday in the deaths of three cousins from Mexico whose bodies were found in a vacant lot in south Phoenix last month.

All three were homicide victims and police said their investigation was ongoing.

On Monday, police said the three bodies had been identified as 28-year-old Herminio Perez Ramirez, 21-year-old Isauro Martinez Dominguez and 16-year-old Abimael Jimenez Morenos.

The bodies were discovered on Feb. 20 in Phoenix’s Estrella Village neighborhood.

Police said all three victims had obvious signs of trauma, but they have not released any information on how the three were killed.

ABC15 reported that family of the cousins, who were from Oaxaca, Mexico, said the three were driving to Wisconsin to live with relatives.

The family now is working to bring the bodies of the slain cousins back to Mexico.
