DETROIT -

The family of two Detroit women found dead in a car trunk held funeral services Thursday.

Denesha Hunt, 24, and her 23-year-old cousin, Renesha Landers, were found dead on Dec. 19 in the trunk of Landers' Chryslers 300 which was parked between abandoned houses on Promenade Avenue near Chalmers Street.

More than 1,000 people attended the dual funeral Thursday at New Providence Church in Detroit.

The cousins were the first two of four bodies found in car trunks this month. Autopsies showed no signs of trauma. Investigators were awaiting toxicology reports to determine the cause of death for both women.

Police have connected all four deaths to an escort service listed at Backpage.com. No arrests have been made.
