POLICE are investigating a noise complaint at a caravan park involving people who were later killed in a car crash.
Rafel Jeane-Actie, 24, and pals Eve Smith and Darcy Ross, both 21, died when their white VW Tiguan crashed near Cardiff, Wales in the early hours of Saturday.
Sophie Russon, 20, and Shane Loughlin, 32, were discovered alive inside the wreck 48 hours later off the A48 in St Mellons – they remain in a critical condition in hospital.

Having arrived by car at around 11pm, it was at Muffler where the trio met Shane and Rafel, whom the girls had never met before.
But haunting CCTV shows the car the group had been travelling in at around 2am in the Llanedeyrn area of Cardiff where they reportedly dropped off an unnamed man.
Later that night the White VW Tiguan the five were travelling in came off the roundabout on the A48 near St Mellons and ploughed into woods.
The group may have travelled around 85 miles in total that night.
The wreckage of the deadly crash was discovered by Matthew Pace, 45, and his son Lewis – who was close friends with Rafel – just after midnight on Monday.
Alongside the dead, they discovered bank worker Sophie hanging suspended in wreckage.
Her mum said she is “unrecognisable” from injuries – a bleed on the brain and fractured skull – and is under sedation after panic attacks in hospital.
Following the tragic discovery, Eve Smith's grieving dad Everton paid tribute on Facebook, saying he was overcome with "numbness".

He added: "It’s taken a couple of days and I just can’t believe what has happened, the pain and numbness constantly reminding me that I will never see my beautiful daughter Eve again.
"I would give anything to hear her sing a song again, fly high my queen, I loved you more than words can say and will cherish the 21 years I had with you bossing my life!
"My family and I would appreciate time to grieve and mourn."
"Beautiful and bubbly" Eve starred in TV documentary after her sister was killed in car smash eight years ago.
