On Friday morning (Nov. 6), a couple was shot to death while engaging in sex in an SUV in Philadelphia. But that’s just a hint of the “crime of passion” that led to their deaths.

Police believe both victims were stepping out on their respective significant others.

Reports the New York Daily News:

A man and a woman in the thick of a lovers tryst Friday were repeatedly shot in the head at a Philly park by an assailant who had an “obvious” beef with their relationship, authorities said.

The victims, Shakoor Arline, 25, and Lisa Smith, 32, were dating each other on-the-side of their respective relationships, Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark revealed Monday.

“I can tell you from the crime scene it appears to be very much a crime of passion,” Clark told reporters at a media briefing. “Somebody knew that they were in the park at that time and obviously had an issue with that.”

A maintenance crew collecting trash at Fairmount Park were first to find their bullet-riddled bodies in the back of a parked SUV around 2 p.m. Friday.

Arline was naked while Smith was partially undressed.

The murder reportedly occurred sometime between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m.

The shooter opened the back of the SUV, firing at least nine shots and striking both victims in the head.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, police are checking the alibi of a woman who was dating Arline and searching for the whereabouts of a man who dated Smith.
