Their deaths went unsolved for four years, now there are finally some answers in the death of two people, found shot to death, in a Bourbon County field.

Investigators have gone to great lengths to identify the individuals.

Bourbon county deputy coroner DeeGee Ison says the victims have been identified as 28-year old Francisco Aldaba and 19-year old Miniamin Osorio Lazaro, both of Mexico. Ison says that's why it was so difficult to track down their family members to compare DNA.

Those family members would not have been found if it wasn't for the state's first ever bi-lingual news conference held after the murders in November of 2005, which produced numerous tips and leads from the spanish speaking community in the county.

The state medical examiners office was then able to positively identify the men.

There have never been any suspects named in this case, and right now Kentucky State Police are not saying much other than they continue to investigate.

It was determined both victims had evidence of blunt force trauma as well as multiple gunshot wounds.
