DETROIT, MI – Two brothers were found dead inside of a burned out home in northwest Detroit Tuesday morning, September 25th, 2018. Their names were Ace Luciano and Duke. They were 27 and 23-years-old. They were identified on social media by those who knew them.
The fire was set around 3:30AM Tuesday morning on Fielding Street just off W Seven Mile Road. Firefighters found the two brothers bodies. There was nothing that could be done. They were burned beyond recognition.
Arson investigators and police are trying to determine if the brothers were killed and the house was torched to cover up their murders. They also are looking for answers as to why this took place.
Detroit Police think suspected illegal activity in the house might have had something to do with what happened.

An outpouring of sadness and grief is being expressed on social media about the loss of the two men. One of the men leaves behind 2 children.
