Police now say the teenager charged with murdering two men in Central Falls knew his victims. Investigators say Pedro Lopez, 19, targeted the men who were left rotting in a Sylvian Street apartment.

Police were called to the home mealier this month after neighbor reported a foul smell. The bodies of Malcolm Townes and Nathan Lewis were found inside. Police say Lopez killed them with 'sharp force', something consistent with a knife.

Officials are not commenting on any possible motive. They are looking into wether any one else was involved in the killings.
