Sandra Yi ReportingFour weeks after the brutal beating of two teenage boys dumped in South Salt Lake the case remains unsolved, but police aren't giving up on the investigation.

This case has frustrated police. Their investigation seems to have reached a dead end. In hopes of generating new leads, the families have now allowed police to release the victims' names and pictures.

Andrew Weston and Aaron Dowdle, both 15 years old, are still recovering. Police found the two unconscious in two different locations in South Salt Lake. They believe the teens were beaten at different places, then their bodies dumped. They were beaten so severely police are sure they were left for dead.

Their families say the two teens were inseparable. The night of the attack they were staying at Dowdle's house. A girl told their parents she saw them hanging out near the house between midnight and 1:00 a.m.

If you have any information on this case, call South Salt Lake City Police.
