A Louisville woman has come forward, saying the two teenage bodies found in West Louisville on Sunday are her sons.
Marie Wren said the two boys were 14-year-old Larry Ordway and 16-year-old Maurice Gordon. Neither LMPD nor the coroner’s office have officially identified the bodies.
Wren said she learned the news on Tuesday, May 24. She recalled the last time she had talked to her sons was on Saturday, when she thought they were with friends.
“They were well-liked kids,” Wren said. “Everybody knows them. They got killed over nothing.”
“Larry played football and he was honor roll in school, and Maurice loved music. He was into the music industry and they were great kids. They didn’t take from nobody,” Wren added.
Neighbors say they found the burned teenage bodies on Sunday behind a vacant home near 40th Street and River Park Drive.
The family has their own theories as to why the boys were killed, and say they want those who detail to step up and inform authorities.
“I just want to say if they have anything or know anything please come forward because if it was yours, I would,” Wren said.
Wren recalled the last words she heard from her children being “I love you.”
A balloon release is planned for 6 p.m. Wednesday at Wyandotte Park.
The family has also set up a GoFundMe to help with the boys' funeral expenses.
