KENNEWICK, WA - Benton County Sheriff's Office detectives have named three more people as "persons of interest" after three people were found shot to death in a field near Kennewick almost three weeks ago.  They are Fidel Miranda-Huitron, 51, Eduardo Miranda-Resendiz, 24, and Fernando De Jesus Miranda-Resendiz, 19. 

Deputies said Fidel is the father of Eduardo and Fernando and another person of interest already in the Umatilla County Jail on unrelated charges. His name is Francisco Miranda-Resendiz.

Deputies say all three of the persons of interest released Wednesday lived in the Umatilla area but have not been heard from since shortly after the August 9th triple homicide. The Sheriff's Office confirmed they have heard rumors the men could be in Mexico

"That is a process that would have to be worked out between our prosecutors office and our government and the Mexican government. I've never had to go through the process but I understand it's very involved and so there would be a lot of work that would be done to make that happen if they are there," said Sgt. Kevin McCary. 

Deputies discovered the bodies of 23-year-old David Perez Saucedo, 19-year-old Victoria Torres and 23-year-old Abigail Torres on a Benton County farm. They were last seen on surveillance video at the Pik-A-Pop in Umatilla the night before they died.

 If you have any information about the persons of interest whereabouts, please contact the Benton County Sheriff's Office at 509-735-6555.
