Authorities reportedly responded to a call near East 28th Street in Paterson, New Jersey. Residents told the cops that they heard two gunshots and saw a car go up in flamed minutes after.
The roof of the car had to be cut open to pull the bodies out of the vehicle. The bodies were burned so badly that emergency personal were unable to tell the race or the sex of the couple at first glance.
NBC New York reported that police are working to ascertain a motive, but they believe it may involve drugs.
Investigators found a set of footprints in the snow going through two backyards nearby and are looking into whom they belong to. Maria Rivera, a resident of one of the homes who was shaken by the incident, said that the tracks weren’t there before Friday.
“Yesterday the fence was fine. Nobody from my family walked through there, we have no idea who those footprints belong to.”
Anderson’s mother reportedly said that she had been trying to reach her son for days, but have been unable to make contact with him.
“I’ve been calling him and it’s going to voicemail. I would have heard from him.”
The father, Thurston Anderson, said that he and his wife are “concerned” but there isn’t any definite evidence yet that it was their son in the car.
No arrests have been made in the case.
