Missoula County Sheriff and coroner TJ McDermott has released the names of two victims who were found in a brutal local murder case. The murders occurred on August 17th, and the delay in reporting the names of the victims is likely a result of the decomposition process performed on the victim's bodies. According to police reports, the victim's bodies were found in tubs filled with chemicals.

According to the Missoula County Sheriff, the two victims are identified as Marilyn Pickett, 15, and Jackson Wiles, 24, both of whom are from Missoula.

The two victims were also subjects in a missing persons search near the time of the incident, which was when the above photos were released as part of a Missoula County Sheriff's Department advisory.

Two individuals have been arrested in this case: 23-year-old Tiffany Pierce and 25-year-old Augustus Standingrock. That case is ongoing.
