ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - Authorities have identified two men in Roswell found dead in the aftermath of last weekend’s snow storm.

The Roswell Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/1NZof7X) that Chaves County Sheriff Britt Snyder says 64-year-old John Spain died while shoveling snow.

Snyder says Spain was working Sunday when he apparently suffered a heart attack.

Roswell police say a mobile home park employee found 60-year-old Ronald Schneider buried in snow Tuesday.

Police spokesman Todd Wildermuth says the worker dug Schneider out and called 911.

Schneider was pronounced dead at the scene.

Wildermuth says investigators are trying to determine what led to his death and that Schneider died between Saturday and Tuesday.

The storm slammed New Mexico, dropping 18 inches of snow just in parts of Roswell.
