Paterson NJ police recently arrested the suspects who are suspected of murdering two men and then setting fire to a car in order to cover up the crime.
The two homicide suspects are a 26-year-old man from Paterson NJ and a 28-year-old man from Paterson NJ. They both reside at the same residence on Spring Street.
According to law enforcement, the suspects robbed the victims on the 500 block of East 28th Street in Paterson. After reportedly stealing cash and other items from the victims, the suspects allegedly shot both men in the heads.
The victims were a 25-year-old male and a 27-year-old male. They were both reportedly from Paterson, New Jersey.
When law enforcement found the victims, their bodies were inside a 2015 Audi that had been set on fire. The car was later linked to Kim DePaola, a star of the popular TV show Real Housewives of New Jersey. Investigators believe that the suspects may have started the blaze so that the victims would not be identified.
Paterson NJ detectives were eventually able to track down the suspects on a city street and place them under arrest without incident.
After being arrested and processed, the suspects were remanded to the Passaic County Jail in Paterson, New Jersey. In light of the seriousness of the criminal charges against the suspects, it is very possible that they will not be allowed to post bail in advance of trial.
