ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Investigators from the Sandoval County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security say three bodies have been found buried in a shallow grave near the San Felipe Casino.

They say the bodies of two men and one woman haven’t been identified yet, but they’re believed to be connected to a three-month-old homicide investigation.

The bodies were found Tuesday about 12 miles west of the casino.

On March 1, authorities found an abandoned and bloody pickup truck near the casino.

Sheriff’s officials say three suspects in the case have been identified with charges to be filed soon.

They say two of the suspects already are in custody on unrelated charges while the third suspect is being sought.

The names of the three suspects weren’t immediately released Wednesday.
