The Real Housewives universe took a criminal turn this weekend when two men were shot execution-style and burned beyond recognition in a car that belonged to Kim DePaola, a recurring cast member on the franchise’s New Jersey installment.

The remains of two men were found in the car on Friday (March 17) in Paterson, New Jersey. DePaola’s son, Chris, was the vehicle’s usual operator, according to TMZbut Chris had lent the vehicle to his friend. The friend was supposed to drive Chris to the airport and then return the car, but the friend was using it around town, instead.

Police had to cut through the car’s roof to extract the men’s bodies. Authorities are now searching for video surveillance to help them with the case.

DePaola, known as the Housewives’ villainous Kim D., extended sympathy to the victims on Instagram, and thanked followers for support.

Thank you to everyone for your support!!!!
