WESTLAND, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Wayne County Medical Examiner has identified the bodies of two young men found Friday in a Detroit field as two missing Westland teens. The heartbreaking news has been delivered to their families.
Dental records were used to identify them.
Jacob Kudla and Jourdan Bobbish went missing last Sunday night after visiting a relative on the city's east side. Since then, relatives have been searching the neighborhood where they disappeared.
The car they were driving was found Monday behind a rundown Detroit apartment. Two men were arrested at that building. The men told police they stole parts from the car, but had nothing to do with the disappearance of the teens. The men are expected to be arraigned today at 36th District Court in downtown Detroit.
On Friday, the two bodies were discovered face down, next to one another, in a field near Lyford Avenue and Gilbo Street, on Detroit's east side. That field is adjacent to Detroit's City Airport.
Both were found with bullets to the head, apparently shot execution style. Sources say the bodies were badly decomposed. The condition of the bodies delayed their identification.
Thursday, about 200 people attended a candlelight vigil for the two missing Westland teens.
