The second of two men found dead in a pile of manure at a northwest Indiana horse farm has been identified as a Chicago man, according to the Lake County coroner.

Juan Antonio Perez, 33, died of a gunshot wound to the head. Authorities identified him using his fingerprints, according to the Associated Press.
   
Officials say he and Victor Flores, 35, were shot execution style. Flores, an East Chicago, Ind., resident, was identified last week.
   
Both victim's bodies were found in a 15-foot pile of manure on Easter Sunday by horse owners visiting the Gary, Ind., farm. When officers searched the area, they found one body partially wrapped in plastic and another fully wrapped.
