MCKEE, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a car fire in Kentucky where two people were found dead and burned last week is still being investigated.
WYMT-TV quotes Jackson County Deputy Coroner Melvin Lakes in a Tuesday report as saying it could be a while before investigators determine what caused the deaths of 28-year-old Whitney Venable and 35-year-old Joey Marcum. Lakes and state police were called out to the scene Dec. 28.
Lakes says the bodies of the Sand Gap residents were discovered on a road in a remote area, and the fire was out when authorities arrived.
One body was found inside the vehicle while the other was outside. Both were burned beyond recognition.
