"There's nothing to connect the two. There’s no activity that’s similar, there’s no parties that are similar," said Yakima Police Lieutenant Mike Pollard. "So right now, we’re just looking at it as a strange set of circumstances."
The most recent murder happened on the evening of Friday 8th March when police responded to an incident in Yakima, Washington.
Officers found the body of 25-year-old Jose Duran Tellez, beaten and shot to death.
Tellez’s death follows three months after that of 22-year-old Julian Reynoso-Valdez.
