Suspicious Fire Deaths Ruled Homicides

Two men were found dead inside a home at 2635 4th Ave. North in St. Petersburg. Police say one victim's truck is missing.

St. Petersburg Police said the deaths of two men found inside a burning home at around 1:30 p.m. Sunday have been ruled homicides. 

According to police, one of the deceased victim's vehicles is missing from the scene.

Detectives are seeking the public's help in locating the vehicle, which is a 2004 Ford pick-up truck, black in color with a FL personalized tag number of AREK. The truck has a plate on the front, which says "AREK".

On the tailgate there are two devil horns painted on each side of the Ford emblem and a devil's tail painted under the emblem, police said.

Detectives ruled the deaths a homicide after a report from the Medical Examiner's Office that the cause of death of the two men found in Sunday afternoon's fire was the result of homicidal violence, police said.

According to police, they will not be releasing any specific information regarding the manner of death at this time. Release of the two victims' identities is pending notification of their next of kin.

Anyone with information on the truck's location can contact the St. Petersburg Police Department, at 727-893-7780.
