Investigators in Wisconsin are trying to solve the murders of three men discovered at a rock quarry.
“We are getting a lot of information. It’s coming very fast,” La Crosse County Sheriff Jeff Wolf said. “We are following up on a number of leads.”
Employees of Milestone Materials discovered the bodies of Peng Lor and Nemo Yang, both 24, as well as 23-year-old Trevor Maloney at the entrance to the quarry in the township of Hamilton, Wisconsin, on July 24, according to the Lacrosse County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities believe the victims died at the scene where they were found and knew their killer or killers. A dozen investigators, including from the sheriff’s office and Wisconsin State Crime Lab, are trying to determine the victims' whereabouts in the day preceding their slayings, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.
“We believe at this time it was a targeted act. We do not know the reason,” Wolf said of the triple homicide. “There were no vehicles left at the scene. It’s a very fluid case at the present time, it’s a very complicated crime scene.”
The sheriff’s office noted there is no reason to believe the public is in danger.
Anyone with any information related to the murders is asked to call Crime Stoppers or the non-emergency line at (608) 785-5942.
