MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are investigating a double homicide at the The Villas at Willow Creek Apartments in Parkway Village.

Fidencio De La Cruz Osorio

Authorities told WREG's Melissa Moon they found the first victim dead next to a gold and tan SUV. He had reportedly been shot around 5:50 a.m. Monday.

That victim's brother-in-law identified him as Fidencio De La Cruz Osorio. He leaves behind five children, WREG has learned.

While canvassing the area for evidence, authorities also discovered a female in the breezeway between two apartments. She was also dead from a gunshot wound.

Residents say the woman didn't live at the complex and was staying with her daughter.

Osorio's relatives say they don't know why anyone would want to hurt him, and say the man police are looking for was at the apartment complex Sunday.

Ciro Terron says Osorio was married to his sister.

He wants the person responsible for his death to know they've destroyed many lives. "You need to think about what you do in this life. It's bad. Everything is bad."

Investigators are not sure what led up to the shooting, but said the victims are not related to one another. The suspect may have been known to the victims, but is not yet in custody.
