According to preliminary data the teenagers might have died of exhaust gas inhalation when the car was on in a closed not aired space. The dead bodies were found today in the afternoon by the owner of the garage, the teenagers’ 20-year-old acquaintance, who had brought the teenagers on his car in the garage the night before.
