Chicago Police Investigating 3 Bodies Found In Car

The three men found dead in a reportedly stolen Pontiac Grand Prix Wednesday night in the McKinley Park neighborhood on the South Side died of blunt force trauma in an assault, according to Thursday autopsy reports.

The bodies of three men were found about 9:30 p.m. inside a vehicle on the street in the 2300 block of West 36th Street near the Belt Railway-CTA Orange Line viaduct.

The men were dead on the scene and suffered multiple injuries from trauma, according to a spokesman for the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.

Autopsies performed Thursday revealed all three men died of blunt force trauma in an assault, the medical examiner's office said. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.

A man found in the back seat of the vehicle was an unidentified man in his 20s. The two men in the trunk were identified as Crawford L. Davis, 23 and Tyrece D. Bailey, 23, a medical examiner's spokesperson said. The men lived together in the 1900 block of West Garfield Boulevard.

All three men had their hands bound with rope and were apparently beaten to death, sources said.

The 2007 Grand Prix was parked when police found it and it did not have any broken windows or look like it was involved in a crash, sources said.

The car was equipped with an OnStar security system, which may have tipped off police to the whereabouts of the vehicle when the registered owner reported it stolen, police said.

The Chicago Fire Department was not called to the scene, according to Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford.

Wentworth Area detectives are conducting a triple murder investigation.
