RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- An autopsy is scheduled Tuesday for a body that was found in a car with Utah license plates in Riverside, Calif. Saturday.

San Diego police said the car belongs to Gianni Belvedere-- a Utah man who has been missing ever since his fiance and brother, identified as Ilona Flint and Salvatore Belvedere, were killed outside a mall in Mission Valley, Calif. on Christmas Eve. Officers said Flint and Salvatore used to live in Utah.

Gianni was never named a suspect in the case, but rather a missing person. Police have not released the identity of the person found dead in the car, they've just said it's a 24-year-old man.
