Investigators say 22-year-old Erick Reyna and 27-year-old Noe Flores Rascon, both of Osceola, were found shot to death in a car located in a rural area of northern Clarke County over the weekend. The pair had gone missing Friday night.
The State Medical Examiner has ruled both deaths as homicides. Police have charged 38-year-old Richard Carson of Osceola with two counts of first-degree murder. Three other people are facing charges of accessory after the fact in connection with the case. Investigators have not revealed what may’ve led to the shootings.
Iowa DCI Special Agent in Charge Michael Motsinger says double homicides are rare in Iowa, but it is certainly not something they can’t handle.
