Police have charged two men with murdering another man in a Cary laundromat late last month.

Authorities arrested Rumaldo Ramirez Velasquez, 40, of Cary in South Carolina last Friday, the town announced Tuesday. Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Ruben Gilberto Hernandez, 23, also of Cary. Both are charged with murder.

A cleaning person found the body of Eriberto Crecencio Bosques lying face down in the Wash Tub Laundromat at 101-E Reed St. on the morning of March 29, according to police. The State Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a homicide, but Cary police haven’t said how Bosques, 29, died.

In a written release, Capt. Don Hamilton congratulated the town’s detectives and its investigative partners, but he said the case remained “a very active investigation.” The release asked anyone with further information to contact Cary police at 919-469-4012 or file an anonymous report via Cary CrimeStoppers at 919-460-4636. CrimeStopperes pays for helpful tips on open criminal cases.

Hamilton declined to comment on the suspected motives in the case.
