Two 17-year-olds were found dead in a minivan in Dale City, Virginia, Saturday afternoon, police said — after both their families reported them missing.
Indya Davis, 17, and Lyle Ferringer, 17, both of the Woodbridge area, were found at 4:46 p.m. near Dawson Park, police said. The teens were in the back of the minivan, which had all its doors locked. Police said the teens had injuries, but did not say what they were.
Davis' brother confirmed to News4 that Davis and Ferringer were in a relationship. They had gone to middle school together and had dated for the past three years.
He said Ferringer was a "nice guy," and that the family is still trying to understand exactly what happened.
The teens were pronounced dead at the scene. Police said they were working with the Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the cause of death, and added there was no threat to the community, because the event did not seem to be random.
Davis was a senior at Osborne Park High School and Ferringer was a senior at Gar-Field High School. Grief counselors planned to be at the schools Monday.
