Two people have been found dead in Real Housewives of New Jersey's star Kim DePaola's burned Audi after what appears to be a double homicide.

The victims have not yet been identified. A source told E! News Sunday her son Chris's friend Aaron Anderson was the last person to drive the car, even though he was not supposed to use it, and that his mother has been unable to reach him since the incident. Chris was in California at the time of the killings and headed home after hearing the news.

Police said in a statement that on Friday at around 2 a.m., authorities responded to a call about a car on fire. When they arrived at the scene, they found a vehicle engulfed in flames and two victims who were pronounced dead at the scene.

"The car is burnt to a crisp," the source told E! News. "There's nothing left."

The victims had both been shot in the head execution-style, law enforcement sources told NBC New York. Police said in their statement they were taken to a medical examiner's office to be identified. No arrests have been made and the case remains under investigation.


Anderson's mother, Michelle, arrived at the scene after being interviewed by police and told NBC New York that her son had not been answering his phone.

"I've been calling him and it's going to voicemail," she said. "I would have heard from him."

"We're concerned," Anderson's father, Thurston Anderson added. "We have nothing definite so we wanted to look at the spot. We're not sure yet. I'm hoping nothing happened."
