Police disclosed today that two young men were found dead nearby the woods in Palermo. One of the victims suffered a bullet wound to the chest and the other was found with several stab wounds.
One of the young men has been identified as a street vender who regularly sells DVDs of movies and videogames, while the other has yet to be identified.
A police spokesman stated that the bodies were found about 100 metres apart from one another.
The tip was pursued after a 911 call from a pedestrian who spotted one of the bodies while walking along the Tres de Febrero park. Both victims were dead by the time responders arrived.
Investigators believe that the deaths may have occurred as a result of a fight between the two victims, but they are also fully exploring the possibility of involvement by a third party. Neither a knife nor a gun has been found at the scene, supporting the theory that another person may have been involved.
The incident will remain under investigation by personnel from the police station 51a.
