A woman near Edward Jones at 1301 Beville Road saw the body and notified police.
Mary Lynn Hastings was picking up trash behind her real estate office when she made the gruesome discovery.
"I've been here for 20 years, and I have never seen something like this," Hastings told Channel 9's Mike Springer. "It scared me. I was shaken."
Police said the two men were quickly arrested because Murray came back to the crime scene after police arrived and Lopes was sleeping next to the victim.
