Man, woman found shot 'execution style' in Fairmount Park: police

Authorities in Philadelphia say the bodies of a man and woman were found shot "execution style" in a roadside gully in Fairmount Park late Thursday night. 

Officers from the Philadelphia Police Department were called to the 3800 block of Mount Pleasant Drive just before 11 p.m. for reports of two bodies.

Chief Inspector Scott Small said a 38-year-old woman was shot in the head and chest, and a 48-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the head. 

The victims have since been identified as Thurston Cooper, 49, and Krystina Chambers, 38, both of Philadelphia. 


Fairmount Park murder victims identified after police say they were shot 'execution style'

Police have identified the man and woman who were found fatally shot on the side of the road in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park late Thursday night.

"We did find three spent shell casings just a few feet away from both of the victims' bodies," Small said. "At this time we don't have a motive for the shooting."

Investigators say the slain woman has an address in Philadelphia. They're still trying to figure out the man's last known address. 

Authorities hope to use nearby surveillance cameras, including those attached to Mount Pleasant Mansion, to identify a suspect.
