Cleveland police released new details in the double homicide investigation that took place at a east side car dealership on April 14.

According to Cleveland Police, officers responded to the Mr. Cars Inc. automobile dealership in the 700 block of East 185th Street. Police say that the victims' 19-year-old son went to the car lot Friday night after he was not able to contact his parents. The man found his two parents suffering from gunshot wounds to their heads. EMS pronounced the two victims dead at the scene.

Now, police have determined that two cars were stolen from the dealership after the murder. Police are looking for: 

  • 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2 door, white with gold trim and beige or taupe leather interior. The vehicle has a rear gate that opens on both sides.
  • 2008 BMW 528i, 4 door, silver in color. On the right side of the lip of the trunk lid, the BMW vehicle model designation "528i" is prominent.

The victims were identified as 47-year-old Michael Kuznik and 46-year-old Trina Kuznik, the owners of the east side car dealership. The family owned the business since 1977, according to the company's website.

Police are still looking for additional clues that lead to the arrest of a suspect connected to the murders. A $5,000 reward is being offered by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office. Sightings of either vehicle should be reported to 911 immediately.
