Three bodies were discovered inside an SUV in Burbank, California, according to officials, who are now trying to figure out who they are and how they got there.

The SUV—a Jeep model—was parked on the 1300 block of South Varney Street, CBS Los Angeles reported. The Jeep belonged to someone living in Tennessee.

A homicide investigation was launched after the gruesome discovery. The bodies belonged to three adult men, and their identities were not revealed.

“This is definitely suspicious and we believe foul play is involved, so it’s being treated as a homicide at this time,” Derek Green of the Burbank Police Department told NBC Los Angeles. “A Burbank police parking control officer arrived and noticed at least one individual inside of a parked vehicle who appeared deceased,” he added to Fox Los Angeles.

They discovered the body after investigating a parking complaint in the area at around 7 a.m. “This is definitely suspicious and we believe foul play is involved, so it’s being treated as a homicide at this time,” Green told the Fox affiliate.

The identities of the men “have not been made,” Green said. However, the car matched the description of the vehicle in a missing person flyer that had been shared on social media. The three men had gone missing April 13.

“If it’s, in fact, a body dump, we’re going to have a jurisdictional issue to determine who will investigate. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done,” Green was quoted by Fox Los Angeles as saying.

“Any time there’s dead bodies in the neighborhood where you live, where you work, you have concern,” said Rob Embry, who is a production studio manager who works nearby.
