Death Investigation Victims Identified
Preliminary autopsy results have positively identified the seven victims found deceased on Saturday evening. The preliminary autopsy has ruled out any obvious trauma as the cause of death; however, the blood samples from the victims have been transported to a lab for further investigatory examination, and we do not have any timeline on those results.
The victims found inside the residence were currently living at the location. They have been identified as:
Belin Hernandez, age 37
Marleny Pinto, age 34
Breylin Hernandez, age 16
Mike Hernandez, age 7
Marbely Hernandez, age 5
Eldor Hernandez Castillo, age 32
Mariela Guzman Pinto, age 19
The investigation is still very active. When a definitive cause of death is received from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office, the surviving family will be notified, followed by a public release of the information.
