OKLAHOMA CITY — Police are investigating a double homicide in northwest Oklahoma City after finding a vehicle crashed in someone’s yard.
Around two on Friday morning, officers received a call about an injury accident regarding two people who had crashed into a mailbox at Pennyworth Place and Hutchinson, which is near Memorial and County Line Road.
When officers arrived on scene, they found two individuals dead inside the vehicle – a 42-year-old man and a 23-year-old man.
They began investigating the scene as a fatality accident.
When the Medical Examiner arrived, they determined that both people had injuries consistent with homicide.
Officials say the trauma to the victims was unrelated to the crash.
