Car linked to double-slaying found in Riverside with body inside

A car linked to a Dec. 24 double-homicide in San Diego has been located in Riverside with a man's body inside, police said.

The car appears to be the 2004 Toyota Camry that police believe that Gianni Belvedere may have been driving the night that his girlfriend, Ilona Flint, 22, and his brother, Salvatore, 22, were found shot to death in the parking lot of a shopping center.

Since that night, Gianni Belvedere, 24, has been listed as a missing person but not labeled as a suspect. His family has issued tearful pleas for him to return.

The car was found in Riverside shortly after noon. Riverside and San Diego police investigators are working the scene.

No identification of the dead man found in the car has been made, according to San Diego police Lt. Mike Hastings.
