Written by

A 58 year old Copley man has been charged with one count of Aggravated Murder, and one count of Attempted Aggravated murder in connection with the deaths of three men; two found Friday morning in Akron, and the other found shortly thereafter in Copley.

Copley and Akron Police are working together on the case, and brought in a SWAT team to arrest the suspect, Elias Gudino, at his home on Henetta Avenue, early Saturday morning. 

All three of the murder victims were bound, gagged, and shot in the head. Two were found on the side of the road on Cordova Avenue, in Akron, and the other was found nearby in Copley, on Wright Road.

In a press release, Copley police say they believe the murder victims were kidnapped from outside of the area, that additional charges are pending, and that it is possible other suspects may be involved. Why the men, who have not yet been identified, were kidnapped and killed, is still unknown.

In addition, police say they believe the murders were an isolated incident, and that the public is not in any danger at this time.
