SANDY — Police have identified one of two victims found shot and dead inside a burned home near Sandy last week.

Authorities say 59-year-old Ralph J. Salazar was one of the people found Friday morning in a master bedroom on Ksel Drive. Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal says an adult woman hasn't been positively identified.

Detectives say the blaze doesn't appear to be accidental.

Hoyal says the fire has made it difficult to collect and process evidence at the scene, and detectives are seeking the public's help trying to solve the case.
