Officials ID found bodies

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Police identified two men found dead in a ditch near Buford early Tuesday and are seeking the public's help in solving the crime.

The double homicide victims are Martin Gomez-Gonzalez, 26, of Buford, and Gerardo Sorio-Amador, 24, of Sugar Hill, according to a press release issued Wednesday by the Gwinnett County Police Department. The victims' families have been notified.

Details on the deaths are being withheld to avoid compromising the investigation, although police have said the bodies, which were found along Old Suwanee Road, had obvious signs of trauma.

On Tuesday, police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter said it appeared the two were murdered at or near the scene, and investigators are working to establish a motive for the crime.
