Officials have released the names of a Lubbock man and his two children who were discovered dead last month in a vehicle in rural West Texas.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. John Gonzalez said Friday that the Texas Rangers continue to investigate the deaths of 37-year-old Jeremy Contreras, 6-year-old Garett Contreras and 23-month-old Avery Contreras.

He said he had no additional details Friday.

Gonzalez said the bodies were found in Lynn County on July 14 near a roadside park.

Lynn County Sheriff Jerry Franklin says the Texas Rangers are leading the investigation.
