CHANNELVIEW, Texas — Harris County deputies are investigating after four bodies were found inside a burning vehicle in Channelview Friday evening, authorities said.

Firefighters responded to a vehicle fire around 10 a.m. in the 15300 block of Market Street, according Channelview Fire Department.

After the flames were extinguished, first responders discovered an African-American man and woman inside the trunk, Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

Homicide investigators were called to the scene and found two additional bodies — also a man and woman — in the back seat, Gilliland said.

The identities of the victims have not been determined, Gilliland said.

Deputies said the men and women had died before the car was set on fire.

Investigators do suspect foul play.
