Police: 2 Found Shot Dead Inside SUV In Fairmount Park

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Police are investigating after they say two people were found shot to death inside an SUV parked in Fairmount Park.

Authorities say the discovery was made around 2:40 p.m. Friday in the 800 block of Lemon Hill Drive by two Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department employees.

Police say those workers went to ask the driver to move the vehicle from the grass near Lemon Hill Mansion when they noticed the rear passenger window was shattered. Police say they looked inside and found the bodies of a 25-year-old Shakoor Arline and 32-year-old Lisa Smith in the back seat of the vehicle, both with multiple gunshot wounds to the head and in various states of undress.

Police and medics were called, and the victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

"The crime scene unit will be taking the vehicle down to the morgue itself," said Police Captain Ray Convery. "They're going to tow it out of here, so they'll be able to do the further investigation down there without disturbing any of the evidence that's inside of the vehicle."

Police confirmed Saturday that the case was being investigated as a double-homicide.

No weapon has been recovered.

No motive or arrests have been made at this time.
