The photos of two East Palo Alto men linked to a string of homicides in two states were released by police Thursday (Aug. 4).

Jaime Cardenas, 19, and Fidel Silva, 24, are wanted for homicide in Grand Junction, Colo., and for questioning in two homicides in East Palo Alto.

Catherine Fisher, 19, of Menlo Park was gunned down on July 13 while sitting in a vehicle with two acquaintances. Hugo Chavez, 26, was killed July 19 on Illinois Street.
