Burned Bodies Identified

We now know the identities of two people, found dead inside a burned out van.

The medical examiner used dental records to positively identify the victims as 31-year-old Christopher Wicker and 51-year-old Patricia Gabbard, both from McKee. Both died from smoke inhalation.

The van was found over the weekend along Black Water Road in Jackson County.

Police in Jackson County say the fire started when the couple tried to light a propane lantern inside the van.

No foul play is suspected.
