'RHONJ' Star Kim DePaola's Car Used in Double Murder

Two bodies were found in DePaola's burned out Audi in Paterson, New Jersey, on Friday.

Two bodies were found in a vehicle owned by Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kim DePaola (left with co-star Teresa Giudice in 2013) on Friday.

On Monday morning, Kim, who joined the fifth season of RHONJ in 2013, posted a message to Instagram expressing her condolences for the victims' families and confirming both her and her son Chris are safe.

Fortunately, Kim wasn't harmed - in fact, she wasn't even involved in the incident - but her son, Chris', friend may have been one of the victims, who was allegedly "shot in the head execution style". Firefighters were forced to cut open the roof of the auto in order to pull the bodies out, NBC reports.

"Kim 'Kim D." DePaola might be in some off-camera drama.

On Friday, March 17, police in Paterson reportedly responded to a call that shots had been fired on East 28th street.

Chris was the one who regularly drove the auto, but he reportedly had a friend drive him to the airport on Wednesday, March 15.

Fire fighters had to cut through the roof of the Audi S Line to pull the bodies out.

Neighbors told NBC that they heard two gunshots ring out before seeing the vehicle go up in flames.

DePaola has not commented on the probe.

The boutique owner earned a reputation as one of the show's trouble makers after finding herself in the middle of more than one scandal concerning its main cast.
