TONOPAH, Ariz. (AP) - Maricopa County sheriff’s officials have identified two bodies found along a remote road in Tonopah, about 50 miles west of Phoenix.

They announced Thursday that the homicide victims were 18-year-old Jesse Romero of Litchfield Park and a 17-year-old girl whose name is being withheld due to her age and her family’s wishes.

Investigators say the man and teenage girl were both fatally shot.

A man who spotted a woman’s body alongside the road called the sheriff’s office about 5:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Deputies found a dead man about 100 yards away while investigating the scene.

Sheriff’s officials say the double homicide remains under investigation.
