UPDATE: 2 people found shot to death in Fairfield

FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - Two people have been found shot to death in Fairfield.

The bodies 46-year-old Evelyn Restituyo and 47-year-old Francisco Restituyo were found inside an SUV in the parking lot of Jelly Bean Junction Learning Center at the corner of Winton and Mack roads.  Police say the victims each suffered from a gunshot wound to the head and were from nearby townships. Police weren't sure whether they were married. 

The bodies were discovered around 9:15 a.m. Monday morning by a person cutting the grass. The vehicle was parked next to a trash bin about a dozen spaces from the front door of the daycare and in front of a playground.

Katie Reaver, director of the center that cares for about 125 children, said she does not believe the victims have any connection to the day care center.

Some parents said they were called by the center and told they could pick up their children.

Michele Foster picked up her 4-year-old daughter. The van that normally takes her on to preschool was unable to come into the center's parking lot.

When the center called her "they said there were bodies out here. I had her go back and rephrase it," said Foster, who is studying to be a medical assistant.

She planned to take her daughter home for the day. Other children could be heard from inside the center early Monday afternoon. None were on either of the site's two playgrounds.

Reaver said the maintenance worker had walked past the SUV earlier and waved to the man before going about his work. He noticed the SUV again later and told staff he believed the man was asleep. They sent him to check.

"He came running back up and said he saw a gunshot wound to the head," Reaver said. The center then called 911 and went into lockdown, pulling the blinds down so the children didn't see the police activity.

The lot was closed until about 12:30 p.m. as investigators removed the bodies and towed the vehicle.

Autopsies will be performed on Tuesday to try and determine the cause of death.

"We're going to move forward and see where the evidence and information leads us to and hopefully we'll find out what occurred and why those individuals would up where they wound up," said Lt. Kevin Haddix with Fairfield Police.
