Cayce, SC 01/05/2022 (Paul Kirby) – Investigators with the Cayce Police Department are asking for the public’s assistance as they work a double homicide case. These murders happened in the city earlier this week.
According to Ashley Hunter, a spokesperson for the city, the bodies of a woman and a man were found in a home on Circle Drive on the morning of Monday, January 3, 2022. Yesterday, Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher’s office identified the victims as Griselda Osorio Perez, and Lamberto Blanco Menchor.
Hunter said that since Perez and Menchor’s bodies were found, investigators with the Cayce Police Department have worked tirelessly to determine who shot and killed them. At this point, the police believe if the public lends a hand by making tips, the perpetrator or perpetrators could be brought to justice even sooner.
