One of the victims found dead inside a "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star's burning car last week has been identified by his parents.
Michele Ryerson told WABC that she knows her son Aaron Anderson is gone, even though authorities haven't released the names of either of the people killed in what's being investigated as a double homicide.
"They found a wire in the driver's mouth, in his jaws, and my son has a wire in his jaw," Ryerson told New York's ABC affiliate.
Ryerson and her husband Thurston Anderson's 27-year-old son had driven his friend Chris Camiscioli — the son of "Real Housewives" star Kim DePaola — to the airport on Thursday night in Camiscioli's car.
The car, which belonged to DePaola but was often driven by her son, was in flames when cops arrived to the scene at around 2 a.m. Friday morning in Paterson, N.J., and the two bodies in the vehicle had reportedly both been shot in the head.
"They traced the car back to Chris' mom, and the car was in her name," Ryerson said.
Gunshots were heard by residents of the neighborhood before the fire began, according to NJ.com.
DePaola addressed the tragic situation in an Instagram post on Sunday, writing that she and her son are both safe.
"Our deepest condolences go out to the victims' families of this truly horrific tragedy," DePaola wrote.Loved ones have begun paying their respects to Anderson and the other victim, believed to be his friend, by setting up a memorial with candles and flowers at the location where the car was discovered, according to ABC.
