Autopsies are scheduled Thursday for two men found in the trunk of a car in the Englewood neighborhood.

Officers conducting a well-being check in the 7100 block of South Oakley made the gruesome discovery, finding the two men in the trunk of a Chevrolet Camaro about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday, police said. At least one of the men had his hands bound, authorities said.

A cause of death has yet to be determined, due in part to the location of the bodies in the trunk and the amount of blood that was discovered, authorities said. The men possibly had been shot, authorities said.

Area South detectives are investigating, and an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
