Authorities have ruled a double homicide in the deaths of two 22-year-olds, a woman and a man, whose bodies were found in a burning vehicle in the Bronx a week ago, New York City Police said Monday.
Both victims, whose remains were found May 16 after firefighters extinguished flames from the Honda Accord on Shore Road near Pelham Split Rock Course, had been shot in the head and other body parts, police said.
Their identities are being withheld pending family notification.
Autopsies found extensive burns on the bodies in addition to the gunshot wounds. No arrests have been made in the case, and the officer says her investigation is ongoing.
Few details had been released in the week after the fire, though police had said there were no signs of a crash before the fire.
