COPS in Florida are investigating after the decomposed bodies of a woman, 35, and her three-year-old twins were found in her car on March 20.
The vehicle was parked in Melbourne, Florida, though cops say the deceased woman is from St. Lucie County.
Cops were responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle when they made the gruesome discovery at around 10.20pm on March 20.
The car was reportedly parked at the Manatee Cove apartments in Melbourne, just off of Route 1.
The deceased have been identified as Andrea Langhorst, Olivia Dryer and Adam Dryer.
Detectives were able to determine that Langhorst is the mother of the twins, according to WPTV.

Evidence showed that Langhorst may have been living out of the vehicle for an unknown amount of time.
No official cause of death has been released for any of the victims.
"It's still under investigation. We don't have any information as far as how long they were there. But she was living out of her car," Lt. Shaun Hill, spokesman for the Melbourne Police Department, told Florida Today.
Detectives do not believe there is any threat or danger to the public as a result of this incident.

Langhorst's father, Randy, told Florida Today he had not heard from his daughter since March 11.
"We were looking for her and hadn't heard anything from her. That was unusual for her," he said.
"We wouldn't have daily contact with her, but this was a while.
"She was a free spirit, smart as a whip, beautiful, but lived her life to the beat of her own drummer. It's just a tragedy."
He also said he suspects drug use may have played a role in Langhorst's death.
St. Lucie County court records show Langhorst had a history of drug arrests and had attended drug court.
Meanwhile the father of the twins is being held at Brevard County Jail Complex while he awaits trial in a case unrelated to the deaths, investigators told Florida Today.
