The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office says they’re looking for at least one suspect in relation to two people found brutally murdered after being reported missing in 2008.

One of the two victims was found dismembered in a wash in 2009 in Casa Grande. The second was found dismembered in a septic tank on a property in Casa Grande in 2014.

The deaths are being labeled as the “septic tank murders.”

Both victims were reported missing in 2008 from a West Phoenix home. 

PCSO says both deaths are being connected to this suspect, and to a violent Mexican drug gang.

More information on the suspect and the gang are expected to be released at a press conference on Monday morning.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.
