The victims found dead in a car registered to Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Kim DePaola have been identified, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes announced on Monday, March 20.
The deaths of Aaron Anderson, 27, and Antonio Vega Jr., 25, have been ruled a homicide. According to CBS New York, the Paterson, New Jersey, residents were both shot in the head before the vehicle was torched and left on East 28th Street in the town.

My son and I are both safe. Our deepest condolences go out to the victims’ families of this truly horrific tragedy,” she wrote.
