Bomb threat evacuates Gwinnett high school April 24, 2014

A look back at the Post's top stories of the week.

Bodies found

The two bodies found near the Old Farm Estates subdivision in Lawrenceville were identified Thursday.

The bodies of Christian Denisse Tueme, 24, and Gustavo Gomez-Rosas, 36, were found lying in a wooded area early Monday afternoon. Both had been reported missing in October.

The skeletal remains were discovered Monday in the wooded backyards of two homes on Los Alamos Place off Ga. Highway 20.

Snellville landmark destroyed

Those who dined on barbecue at A&J Tasty Pig or shopped for furniture at Under Priced Rooms in downtown Snellville will no longer be able to do so. The businesses were destroyed in a fire Wednesday night.

The Tasty Pig had been in downtown Snellville for 28 years.

"A lot of people came through those doors," said John Garner Jr., owner of the Tasty Pig. "You knew some were going to come in on Tuesday or for dinner Wednesday night or breakfast Saturday morning. And if we didn't see them we'd ask, 'Hey, where have you been?'"

Suwanee Gateway

The former training facility for the Atlanta Falcons will be transformed into a giant mixed-use community, Suwanee's council decided.

The 148 acres at the intersection of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Interstate 85 is the largest undeveloped tract of land in the city. The Suwanee Gateway will include 138 townhomes, 340 apartments surrounding a parking deck, 580,000 square feet of office space, 360,000 square feet of retail space including a big-box retailer, a full-service hotel with a conference center and a town center.
