Police officers responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked on a street in the Bay Terraces neighborhood of San Diego on Sunday evening made a gruesome discovery when they opened the car’s trunk and found the bodies of three people inside.
Homicide investigators were called to Jamie Avenue near Doriana Street at about 5 p.m. after the bodies were found.
Two of the victims are female and one is male, police said. The condition of the bodies made it impossible to determine the victims’ races. All three appear to have been in their late teens or early 20s, said San Diego police Lt. Shawn Takeuchi.
None of the victims has been identified.
The county medical examiner’s office will try to determine the identity of the victims and the manner and cause of death, he said.
