Jose along with his wife, Yessica Guerrero Escobedo, 25; Luis Damian Escobedo, 3 and Luis Julian Escobedo, 4, were murdered at mile marker 149 on the FL Turnpike in St. Lucie County.

Family members in Brownsville said the couple were high school sweethearts who married about three years ago and had no enemies when they set out for Florida to find a new life.

The victims were discovered shorly before 8 a.m. Friday just off the southbound lanes of the turnpike, about three miles south of the Midway Road overpass. Each had been shot several times, authorities said.

Yessica Escobedo was found holding her two children. Jose Escobedo was found face-down just in front of his family.

The victims had made no attempt to flee or fight back and were kneeling or lying on the ground when they were shot, Mascara said, adding that the two boys were apparently deliberately targeted, not accidental victims.

Updated: The murders are Daniel “Homer” Troya, 32, and Ricardo “Ricky” Sanchez Jr., 31, who in 2009 were sentenced to death for the shooting deaths of 3-year-old Luis Damian Escobedo and 4-year-old Luis Julian Escobedo. They received life prison terms for the murder of the boys’ parents, Jose Luis Escobedo, 28, and his wife, Yessica Escobedo, 25.
