Crowley Neighborhood On Edge After Men Found Dead

CROWLEY (CBSDFW.COM) - There are still more questions than answers after the bodies of two people were discovered by police alongside a roadway in Crowley late Saturday night. The names of the two men were released on Monday, along with details about how they died.

Officers were called to Hutchins Drive just before midnight on Saturday. That is where they found the two bodies in and near the road. But how the bodies got there is still a mystery. Police have not yet said if the men died at that location, or were taken there after dying somewhere else.

The victims have been identified as 17-year-old Edgar Ramirez and 19-year-old Matthew Lemus. Their family members were at the scene on Sunday. Ramirez had gunshot wounds to the head and arm, while Lemus had gunshot wounds to the chest.

Residents describe the Crescent Springs Ranch neighborhood as a quiet area with rows of homes. The men were found near a community swimming pool.

Some neighbors told police that they heard what sounded like gunshots being fired late Saturday night. The president of the homeowners association said that surveillance video from the clubhouse has been turned over to police -- in case it can help with the investigation.

"Our house backs up to this. We're three houses down," said homeowner Shannon Sharp. "We're in total shock that something like this would happen here."

"I'm anxious to find out what happened, what caused this," added resident Roland Square.

Police have said very little about the investigation, and have not even said if they are searching for suspects or believe that this was an isolated incident.
