RIVERTON (WNE) — Police on Wednesday said there could be a suspect at large related to an ongoing double homicide investigation in Riverton.
The case was initiated at about 12:35 p.m. last Saturday, when the Riverton Police Department responded to a report that there were two deceased or unresponsive subjects in a residence in the 1100 block of East Main Street.
The RPD released the names of the deceased last Monday: Jocelyn Watt and Rudy Perez, both 30, both of Riverton.
A death notice for Watt indicates she died at her home.
On Wednesday, RPD Capt. Todd Byerly told The Ranger that officials have not eliminated the possibility that a suspect may be on the loose related to the deaths.
He did not provide any additional updates.
"We are forging forward with the case and extremely busy working every aspect of the crime," he said.
The incident is listed as a homicide on RPD reports.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Office call log for the Fremont County Coroner indicates the initial report was regarding a suspicious person or circumstance.
Officials at the Fremont County Coroner's Office said they would not be commenting on the deaths, deferring to the RPD.
