Police Identify Lemon Hill Victims; Call Murder ‘Crime of Passion'

- Philadelphia Police have identified the victims in the murder of a man and woman in Fairmount Park last Friday. The victims are  Shakoor Arline, 25, and Lisa Smith, 32, both of Philadelphia, and police described the murder as a “crime of passion” in a news conference Monday.

Both were shot multiple times in the head and were found in a white Toyota Sequoia on Lemon Hill Drive in Fairmount Park.  

The two victims, Homicide Unit Commanding Officer Captain James Clark said, were dating each other but in relationships with other people; that area of the park is sometimes frequented by “lovers,” Clark said.

Police have also spoken to a woman who was in a relationship with Arline; they are looking to speak with a man who was involved in a relationship with Smith. They are also reviewing surveillance video, pulled fingerprints from the outside and inside of the car, and are looking for witnesses to the murder, which they believe took place after midnight.
