Boone County Prosecutor Todd Meyer said Tuesday that his office would work with Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry's office to determine Cabrera-Gonsales' true identity, after which one or both offices will explore filing additional charges, which could include perjury, forgery and identity deception. Curry criticized Trump and others who cited the case as part of the nation's immigration debate, noting that "two innocent men lost their lives in this disgusting incident".
"We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy", said Curry, a Democrat. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. "We will simply seek justice on behalf of the families of those two victims".

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed early Sunday morning after being hit by a drunk driver.
It took a few days but Donald Trump eventually got around to speaking on the subject, and while he sent out his condolences, he also used the opportunity to push his agenda on illegal immigration, because the drunk driver wasn't supposed to be in this country.
When Orrego-Savala appeared before a judge on Tuesday, he questioned why he was in court, and claimed he wasn't driving the vehicle in the fatal crash, according to the court clerk.
Manuel Orrego-Savala remained jailed Tuesday following a court appearance in Indianapolis. "This obviously happened so unexpectedly", Atlanta attorney Daniel Meachum said.
Police also said that Orrego-Savala was at almost three times the legal blood-alcohol content limit, which is 0.08 percent in Indiana.
Orrego-Zavala's defence attorney, Jorge Torres, said in an interview on Wednesday that his client's immigration status was irrelevant to the case.
Orrego-Savala remains jailed in Indianapolis. "We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this hard time".
Investigators said they believe Orrego-Savala, who lives in Indianapolis, was intoxicated and driving without a license.
Court and immigration documents show the man also has spelled his last name Orrego-Savala. Orrego-Savala had a prior conviction for driving under the influence, and had been deported twice, according to officials.
He appeared Tuesday before a judge who advised him of his rights. State Police said Monday that he's a citizen of Guatemala who gave officers a fake name when he was arrested following the pre-dawn crash. Jackson and Monroe were standing outside the driver's auto before being hit by a pickup truck, according to police.
