TOPMOST, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say two sets of human remains have been identified after troopers were called to the site of a burned vehicle at an abandoned mine in eastern Kentucky.
A statement on Wednesday says the remains belonged to 26-year-old David E. Sparkman and 18-year-old Keisha M. Sexton, both of Topmost.
Troopers at the Hazard post were alerted last week to possible remains inside the vehicle, which was located in the Topmost community of Knott County. Troopers confirmed the presence of remains at the time, but said they were burned beyond recognition.
State police continue to investigate the deaths.
