PREVIOUS COVERAGE : BENTON COUNTY, WA - Benton County Sheriff Deputies have identified the third body found on a farm this weekend in Benton County.

Deputies say Abigail Torres, 23, has no relation to the second victim in the triple homicide, 19-year-old Victoria Torres. The bodies of the two young women were discovered Saturday morning southeast of Coffin Road and Nine Canyon Road, along with the body of 23-year-old David Perez Saucedo.

Deputies say they're looking for at least one person who may be responsible for the killings. However, deputies say this wasn't the work of a serial killer and community members should not be concerned for their safety.

Investigators say they have made significant progress on the case but would not say if the deaths were drug-related.

The coroner  has scheduled an autopsy for Monday to determine how the man and two women died.
