A tow truck pulled a dark-colored car from the pond at about 6 p.m.

Investigators said late Monday afternoon they do not suspect foul play in this case and believe the people died after the vehicle crashed into the water, possibly Saturday night.

A least one alligator, which was about 5 feet long, was spotted in the pond.

The cause of death for the victims has not been released.

The bodies have been taken to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
