Left in trunk
Cops made a gruesome discovery on E. 52nd Street on March 9 — the remains of a young couple who had disappeared from Plainfield, NJ stuffed in the trunk of a Nissan.
Police said that they were called to the location at 7:15 pm and found the victims during a search of the car, which was parked near Snyder Avenue, and was the same make and model the couple was seen in before they disappeared.
A Medical Examiner had not released how the couple had died by late Tuesday.

When the woman’s cousin, who lived down the hall, heard the woman’s screams, he kicked in the door, only to watch the suspect stab himself in the stomach.
Police said that the 22-year-old man’s injuries weren’t severe. He was charged with murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the hospital.
