2 Aurora brothers were found slain from gunshot wounds in 2016

The Lockport Police Department wants the public’s help with solving the murders of two men who were found dead four years ago in a Lockport townhome.

About 6:27 a.m. on Nov. 29, 2016, officers responded to the 16100 block of Coneflower Drive in response to a person down inside a townhome that was under construction, according to a Lockport police news release.

The officers found Marco Ceja Sanchez, 37, and David Ceja Sanchez, 36, both of Aurora, inside the building. Both men died from a single gunshot wound, according to the Will County Coroner's Office.
