Sam Penrod ReportingFamily and friends gathered today to pay their respects to the man murdered in Orem ten days ago.

Pablo Montoya and his girlfriend, Maritza Aguilar were found shot to death at an Orem Greenhouse.

Funeral services were held on Saturday for Maritza Aguilar and this afternoon services were held for the other victim killed, 20-year old Pablo Montoya.

Montoya had lived in Utah County for the last few years.

Friends and family remember him as a good friend and loving father.

Montoya is survived by a two-year old son, Pablo Montoya Jr., who lives in Provo with his mother.

Family members in Mexico have requested that Montoya's body will be sent there for burial, but friends and relatives of Montoya here in Utah say they want to keep his memory alive here.

Nashelly Bustos, Ex-Wife of Victim: “We are having a ceremony for him so that my son can remember him and we can remember the good times about him and we're still going to have a space in the cemetery with a tombstone so that people can go visit him as a memorial."

It was during the early hours of June 14th, that investigators say Montoya and Maritza Aguilar were shot to death inside their car at Cook's Greenhouse in Orem.

Orem police today told Eyewitness News they are making progress in the murder investigation, but so far have no new information to release publicly.

Investigators are however still asking for anyone with information on this case to contact them at 229-7070.
