CHELSEA, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A man and woman were found dead inside a car that came to rest against a building in Chelsea.

Police responded to a commercial building owned by Cataldo Ambulance and being used as a fire station at 111 Crescent Ave. at about 4:30 a.m. Monday. Officials are calling both deaths suspicious, but are not saying if they were killed before the car crashed or after.

The car, which has livery license plates, is a Ford Crown Victoria and its driver's side window was completely shattered.

Both bodies were removed from the car just before 8 a.m. The deaths are being investigated by the Chelsea Police Department and state police.

The Suffolk District Attorney's office has identified the victims as 51-one-year-old Zouaoui Dani-Elkebir, of Everett, and 38-year-old Karima El-Hakim, also of Everett.

The medical examiner's office will conduct autopsies to determine a cause of death.

In September, an SUV had been found on Spencer Avenue, which is one street away from Crescent Avenue, with two men shot inside. One of the men ended up dying. It was the first homicide of 2012 in Chelsea.
