(UPDATE) Dealership Owners Found Dead Inside Their Store

April 20, 2017 0 Comments

We have an update to a tragic story we brought you earlier this week, as new details have emerged.

We reported back on April 18 that the owners of the Cleveland, Ohio ‘Mr. Car Sales’ dealership were discovered dead inside their store. The couple, Michael Kuznik 50, and Trina Tomola, 46, were found shot to death at around 10 p.m. on April 14, per Fox 8 Cleveland. An update to that story by the same news outlet has now indicated two vehicles were stolen from the dealership. Our earlier report noted “some property” was taken from the dealership, but vehicle theft had not been confirmed at the time.

Fox 8 indicated the stolen vehicles were a 1999 Chevy Tahoe and 2008 BMW sedan. A police investigation into the matter is ongoing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all that have been impacted by this tragedy.
