NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - New Haven police say they are investigating the deaths of two people who were found unresponsive in a car with its engine running in a parking garage.

Police said Tuesday that an officer doing routine checks spotted the victims inside the car on Sunday and was overwhelmed with the smell of exhaust when he opened the door.

The victims were identified as 28-year-old Michael Longo Jr. of Monroe and 20-year-old Amy Nickerson of New Fairfield. Neither could be revived despite the efforts of emergency medical technicians called to the scene.

Police said the deaths appeared to the result of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. Detectives noticed a flat tire and damaged to a line that connected the engine to the exhaust system.
