Wisconsin authorities investigating a triple-homicide last week in Hamilton have taken two men into custody, and believe a dispute over $600 preceded the fatal violence.

Nya Kou Thao, 33, and Khamthaneth Rattanasack, 41, are accused in the execution-style shootings of Trevor Maloney, 23, and Nemo Yang and Peng Lor, both 24.

The two men were apprehended at separate locations, and at this time, no formal charges have been filed against them.

They are due in court later today.

All three victims were found on July 23, at the entrance to a quarry in Hamilton.

According to La Crosse County Sheriff Jeff Wolf, who addressed the media Thursday, the arrests were the result of the “excellent work of numerous investigators” from multiple jurisdictions.

“Investigators worked tirelessly to bring resolution and arrests in the case,” Wolf said. “The agencies cannot be commended enough for the great work they have done and the work yet to take place.”

A witness approached detectives the day after the killings.

criminal complaint, obtained by the La Crosse Tribune, alleges the witness told police she pulled into the Holiday Inn in Onalaska and briefly went inside. When she returned, Thao entered her vehicle, sitting in the back seat on the driver’s side. Yang sat in the front passenger seat, she said.

She was told to follow Rattanasack, who was driving a Mercedes. Upon arriving at the quarry, the witness said Rattanasack ordered the three victims to get on their knees and crawl toward the gate. She said Rattanasack then handed a gun to Thao, who shot all three men multiple times.

She said Rattanasack and Thao left in their vehicles after allowing her to return to her car and leave.

Investigators do not know why the witness’ life was spared.

Police also received what they described as a reliable tip from another witness, who said Rattanasack accused Yang of stealing $600 from him — by using his credit card.

It was unclear Friday if either defendant had a lawyer.

    1. That’s all good and well Mike, but remember this. Even though we are so angered by these senseless murders over money, It’s not up to us. God says He will have vengence, and His punishment is just and sure. Imagine living forever in eternal punishment forever in hell and fire, constantly suffering in anguish. I’m ad as hell at these guys too, but I’ll let the Lord handle it. His kind of justice scares the daylites out of me.

      1. Give it a break!!
        God also says for YOU to do all you can and he will do the rest!! In your world you want to let them walk free until God has vengeance while they go about killing again when provoked?? God says an eye for an eye, execute them now and send them to God for His vengeance. We will have done our part and protected others.

  4. That mentality of God will take care of such things is failing to take any responsibility. God expects us to enact law and order not idly stand by and expect God one day will do it. Many Christians fail to grasp, that God gave man authority to administer justice to criminals. “Justice” in our nation is not “justice” but we allow such evil to go untouched. More common than not the criminal has more rights than the victom. That is evil. But to have the attitude God will take vengeance is in many ways standing by and doing nothing and not demanding harsher punishment for these violent criminals. It’s basically taking a stance “there’s nothing I can do about it until it affects you personally and then it’s a different story.
