Authorities in Miami are currently investigating the murders of two truck drivers who were reportedly tortured for hours and killed before their bodies were dumped into the street.

The incident was reported over the weekend outside of an abandoned home in Opa-locka.

Miami-Dade homicide detectives say that masked men kidnapped three Oliva Delivery Corp truck drivers, tortured them for hours in the back of a moving-type truck, before shooting them execution-style in the head.

One of the victims survived the ordeal and was taken to an area hospital in critical condition after a passerby came upon the scene and flagged down police.

Detectives identified the deceased as 50-year-old Osmar Oliva who owned Oliva Delivery Corp truck drivers and 26-year-old Johan Gonzalez Quesada who had a 1-year-old daughter and a baby born less than two weeks ago. The third victim has not been named as this time.

Authorities say each of the victims have had earlier brushes with the law.

Oliva was one of three men arrested in 2007 after they were found unloading cargo off a stolen tractor trailer while Gonzalez Quesada was accused last year of having two loads of pilfered cargo — frozen shrimp, and air-conditioning units which were discovered at his home. Gonzalez Quesada plead not guilty and was awaiting trial.

Detectives have are offering a reward of $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
