RHONJ Star Kim DePaola’s Car Involved in Double Murder

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kim DePaola is reportedly caught in the center of a double murder investigation after two bodies were found in a car owned by her that had been set on fire on Friday.

TMZ is reporting that an Audi belonging to DePaola and reportedly mostly used by her son Chris was discovered badly burned with two charred bodies inside of it in Paterson, New Jersey.

Both unidentified victims were shot in the head execution-style, authorities told NBC. One source said the remains were so torched that investigators couldn’t immediately determine the race or sex of the victims, but later learned the victims were both men.

Authorities told NorthJersey.com that they were investigating the crime as a double murder.

“I can’t tell you why we are treating it as a homicide, but we are treating it as a homicide,” police Capt. Richard Reyes said.

NBC reports that neighbors heard two gunshots ring out before seeing the car go up in flames. Firefighters were forced to cut open the roof of the car in order to pull the bodies out.

TMZ reports that Chris was out of town after a friend dropped him off at the airport in the car, though the friend was not supposed to be driving the vehicle around.

The mother of Aaron Anderson, the 27-year-old who was in possession of the vehicle, says she has not been able to get in contact with her son.

“I’ve been calling him and it’s going to voicemail,” she told NBC. “I would have heard from him.”

“We’re concerned,” his father, Thurston Anderson, told NBC. “We have nothing definite so we wanted to look at the spot. We’re not sure yet. I’m hoping nothing happened.”

TMZ also reports that Chris is extremely concerned after being unable to contact his friend.

No arrests have been made yet. Although a motive for the crime has not determined, investigators are looking into whether drugs were involved, NBC reports.

Kim addressed the tragedy with an Instagram post.

Thank you to everyone for your support!!!!

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    RHNJ has insinuated in the past that Kim D was tied to drugs and even she said on one episode, “I play with the big boys” when hinting who she hangs with for clout…very stereotypical “mafia style” vibe I get from this showand now this?!!

    • DaysofWineandRoses

      Honestly, the only time I’ve gotten Mafia vibes are, like you say, through Kim D., the older Crypt Keeper Kim, and then of course, Danielle, because she wouldn’t shut up about it and then of course, the incident where it was alleged she was behind Dina Manzo’s mailbox being blown up in the earliest phases of the show. The rest of the cast I believe are clean, but those other three…yikes.

    Shot execution style? what in the Sneaky Pete is going on with Kim’s people”?

    At an appropriate hour ( I know it’s still early across the pond), do we have any of our Jersey folks who can weigh in?
