— Newly released autopsy results on two victims in a Durham quadruple homicide confirm what police first thought.

The state medical examiner found that Jonathon Skinner and Lennis Harris Jr. died from gunshot wounds to the back of the head. Both were shot twice -- each with gunshot wounds on their hands.

The two men were found along with Jamel Holloway and Juan Coleman in a townhouse on Alpine Road in November.

Police say the shootings were drug-related, but the autopsy report shows Skinner and Harris did not test positive for illegal drugs. They did, however, have alcohol in their system, according to the autopsy reports.

Authorities are offering up to $13,000 for information leading to the arrests and convictions of those responsible for the homicides.

Investigators urge anyone with information about the case to contact the Durham Police Department at (919) 560-4440, ext. 259 or Durham CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.
