Two men whose bodies were found by firefighters putting out a brush fire along the Belt Parkway in Queens have now been identified.
Investigators say the victims are Rudy Superville, 22, and Gary Lopez, 25, both of Brooklyn.
The medical examiner is still determining exactly how they died.
Police now want to locate the occupants of three vehicles seen leaving the scene of the crime.
Firefighters discovered the bodies on 159th Avenue and 78th Street in Howard Beach around 4 a.m. Wednesday while battling the fire.
The men were found fully clothed and their hands may have been bound.
Authorities believe they were likely killed elsewhere, dumped in the marsh and the fire was started to cover up the crime.
Sources say one of the men had been reported missing from his home.
