“Both victims sustained fatal injuries, and our deepest condolences go out to their families and loved ones during this difficult time,” a statement from Lieutenant Craig Stotts, spokesperson for the department read.

Jesse’s father, Adam Ortiz, is also in the window film industry and owns a tint shop in nearby Burley, Idaho. They were primarily customers of SolarFX Window Films.

“We have done business with Adam, Jesse’s father, since 2019 and Jesse since 2020,” says Shawn Vogler, vice president of SolarFX. “Jesse was a great customer and he truly will be missed. This is such a tragic event and we hope that the people who perpetrated this heinous act will be found quickly and held accountable for their actions. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jesse’s wife, children, and family as they deal with this unthinkable situation.”

The police department is investigating, and they do have photo and videos of the suspects as well as a nickname. They are pursuing all leads and as of Wednesday, no arrests have been made and they were not able to locate the suspects.

GoFundMes have been set up for the victims by friends/family. Bravo’s can be found here and Ortiz’s can be found here.
