Authorities have identified two suspects in the murder of a Filipino-American nurse last February in Texas.

Glenser Soliman, a 44-year old Fil-Am nurse supervisor in Houston, was reported missing by his family in February 18.

Ten days later, Soliman’s body was found hidden in a wooded area not far from his residence.

The Harris County sheriff’s investigators charged 18-year old Brandon Lyons with capital murder. His cousin, Jerrett Allen, is also being linked to Soliman’s death, but his whereabouts are currently unknown.

The two suspects are also being investigated in the March disappearance of An Nguyen, a University of Houston student who is now presumed dead by investigators.

Lyons and Allen reportedly used a dating app — possibly catering to gay men — to rob and kill Soliman and Nguyen.
