BURBANK (CBSLA) — Police were conducting a homicide investigation Tuesday after three bodies were discovered inside an SUV parked on a Burbank street.
Police say they responded to a call around 7:10 a.m. regarding a parked Jeep in the 1300 block of South Varney Street.
According to Sgt. Derek Green, responding officers found three bodies inside the car.
The Jeep is reportedly registered to someone living in Tennessee.
The bodies discovered inside the car were those of adults, believed to be three adult men.
Due to the condition the bodies are in, they will most likely need to be identified using fingerprint identification, according to CBS2’s Dave Lopez.
CBS2 obtained a flier originally posted on Facebook by a family from Bakersfield, in which three missing people are identified. The flier also shows photos of a burgundy Jeep, stating that the car in which the three missing people were last seen driving had Tennessee license plates.
Police have not confirmed any connection between the three missing people in the flier to the three bodies found in Burbank.
Further information regarding the identities of the victims or the cause of death was not immediately available.
