Authorities said Tuesday that the two men were found dead inside a car in Pleasanton over the weekend for at least a month.
The man and woman we met last week were around 20 or 30 years old. Investigators now believe he was much taller than previously thought a week ago.
Beyond that, much remains a mystery about the discovery of the two. Officers responded to Pamelico Drive around 9:45 a.m. and found him in a car near Interstate 680 Soundwall.
The Almeida County Sheriff’s Office has not yet completed an autopsy or publicly identified anyone.
“Once we’re positive about them, we’ll be able to work on their history,” said Lieutenant Eric Selsey of Pleasanton Police. “It should lead to new information.”
Selsey said investigators have not determined how the two died, but neighbors’ videos and statements have changed their view of how long the two have been there.
“Based on our initial investigation, we believe they were taller than before, at least a month,” Selsey said.
He said the location of the car, near the highway’s sound wall, was probably why no one had seen the couple before.
“Based on the information we have, you probably wouldn’t see them if you were walking,” Celice said. “One side of the car was the sound wall, and the other was where the street was, and they fell down.”
Police were considering all possibilities, including the wrong game. Celsi urged the investigation to be patient.
Pleasanton police asked anyone with information to call 925-931-5100.
