Two dead bodies found in burning car

Au­thor­it­ies have yet to re­lease the names of two dead bod­ies who were dis­covered in­side a burnt-out minivan in Frank­ford early Sat­urday.

A man iden­ti­fied as “John Doe” died from a gun­shot wound of the head, while a wo­man iden­ti­fied as “Jane Doe” died in the vehicle fire, po­lice said. Both were found in­side a Ford Wind­star parked on the 4600 block of Trenton St.

Fire­fight­ers were called to the scene at 3:55 a.m. and doused the flames with­in minutes, only to find the charred bod­ies in­side the vehicle. The blaze has been ruled an ar­son. Po­lice have iden­ti­fied no sus­pects and are un­sure of a motive. ••
