THE BRONX - A young married couple from the Bronx was found dead inside their car in Westchester County.

According to police, Elijah and Shannon Woodson, both 22 years old, likely took their own lives late Tuesday night.

They were discovered in a secluded section of a parking lot at the Cross County Mall in Yonkers with charcoal briquettes burning in the back of their vehicle.

Sources tell News 12 that they were already dead when help arrived. The medical examiner says inhaling the burning charcoal is what killed them.

The husband was a former Marine and the two were reportedly high school sweethearts.
