Victims of triple homicide near La Crosse identified as young men

The victims are ages 24, 24 and 23, respectively.

The victims of a triple homicide near La Crosse have been identified as young men in their 20s. 

They are identified as: Peng Lor, age 24; Nemo Yang, age 24; and Trevor J. Maloney, age 23. Maloney's last known addresses were in Cashton and Sparta, Wisconsin, while Lor and Yang are described as having no permanent address. 

"Investigators are following up on information regarding the whereabouts of the victims for the 24 hours prior to discovery of the bodies," the sheriff's office said. 

"The La Crosse County Sheriff's Office would like to extend our sincerest condolences to the families of the victims. Our team and the assisting agencies are working diligently in the pursuit of justice for your lost loved ones." 

At least a dozen investigators are actively working the case. 

The bodies were found at the entrance of the Milestone Quarry – located on County Road M between the towns of Holmen and West Salem, just before 5 a.m. Friday. The bodies were discovered by two workers of Milestone Materials, who were arriving to start their shifts when they found them.

La Crosse County Sheriff Jeff Wolf said the killings are believed to have been a "targeted act," but at this point they have no motive or suspects in custody.

“For whatever reason, it occurred at this location for a specific reason," he said, according to WEAU. "I don’t think there’s any concern for residents or our communities."

How the trio was killed has not yet been released. A medical examiner in Rochester was in the process of conducting autopsies. 

Few details about the victims have been released, though a GoFundme for Maloney describes him as the father of two young girls.
