Cheating Couple's Secret Rendevouz Ends In Tragedy

Shakoor Arline and Lisa Smith were in a relationship, but they were also in a relationship with other people, according to police. Now they are both dead in what authorities are a call a “crime of passion.”

The 25-year-old and 32-year-old were found shot to death in a Toyota Sequoia SUV near a historic mansion in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, NBC Philadelphia reports. According to police, Arline was found naked and Smith was half clothed in the back seat of the SUV that had Arizona plates on it.

The passenger’s back seat window was shattered by bullets, and both had been shot multiple times in the head. A total of nine shots had been fired at close range. They were found by a crew emptying trash on the estate who noticed the car was parked in an odd space.

"I can tell you from the crime scene, it appears to be very much a crime of passion," said Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark during a press conference. "We've got nine shots fired, all of them head shots, to both of the victims."

According to NBC Philadelphia, police said they were initially under the impression that the two were dating, but they later found out that they were also in relationships with other people.

"We know that they had a relationship, but also they had outside relationships, so obviously that's where our investigation is going to start," said Clark. "Because somebody knew that they were in the park at that time and obviously had an issue with that."
