The bodies of two people were found dead in Kim DePaola's burned car over the weekend, but The Real Housewives of New Jersey star claims she has nothing to do with the double murder. DePaola exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com that she believes the homicides were gang related.
"People are saying my car was tied to the murders, my car was not tied to anyone," DePaola, 56, told Radar. "Aaron Anderson, a friend of my son, was supposed to drop my son off at the airport, park the car and not use it. But he used the car and then this horrific accident happened."
DePaola, who has a recurring role on the Bravo series, claims she was home and her son was in California at the time of the incident.
"The cops never thought I had anything to do with it," she said. "This would've happened in my car or not."
The reality star believes the incident was gang related.
"The mob doesn't do this," she said. "It would be gang related. Maybe they pissed someone off and they're making a statement. I hope they find these savages."
Police responded to a car fire on Friday at 2a.m. The Audi, which is registered in DePaola's name, belongs to her son Chris Camiscioli, 27.
Law enforcement sources told NBC New York that the victims had been shot in the head execution-style before the car went up in flames.
Dental records are being sought to identify the victims.
Anderson's mother Michelle told NBC New York that she hasn't heard from her son since the incident.
"I've been calling him and it's going to voicemail," she said. "I would have heard from him."
No arrests have been made and the investigation remains ongoing.
The Paterson Police Department would not respond to Radar's request for comment.
