Police are investigating an apparent triple homicide in west Phoenix.

The victims were found south of Indian School Road and 103rd Avenue, Sgt. Andy Hill said. Additional information isn't yet available.

The bodies were found in the back of a sports utility vehicle parked in front of an apartment complex by a police officer who thought the SUV was suspicious.

The apartment complex manager told reporters that the Ford Explorer had been towed onto the street on Dec. 4 because the parking lot was being repaved, and has been there ever since.
