The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office say the victims are 14-year-old Paris Bradley and 39-year-old Paul Bradley.

According to police, the car was found in an abandoned lot near 14603 Savannah Avenue.

The bodies were inside a silver Buick LaCrosse with New York license plates.

Members from the Ohio Fire Marshal’s Office and Bureau of Criminal Investigation were dispatched to the scene.
