OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police say two men found dead in Oklahoma City inside a sport utility vehicle that was reported stolen are believed to be homicide victims.

Police Lt Jeff Spruill says the men were found Friday morning after a homeowner called police to report the SUV had crashed into a mailbox about 2 a.m.

The names of the two have not been released.

Spruill said officers initially thought the men were killed as a result of the crash, but a medical examiner determined their injuries are consistent with homicide.

He said the SUV had been reported stolen early Thursday in Oklahoma City.
