Neighbors say they are stunned at what police found early Thursday morning when responding to what they thought was an abandoned vehicle.

"It's usually a quiet peaceful place around here, but not today. I've never seen anything like this before."

Police discovered two bodies inside a pick-up truck, both burned beyond recognition. "We're hoping dental records will help reveal their identities."

Detective Jim Strain with the Allen County Sheriff's Department says the two were likely killed, then placed inside the truck before being set on fire. "It's possible they've been here for more than a few days."

Authorities say they aren't sure if this incident is drug related.
They do know the truck was not stolen. Two people have recently been reported missing from the Barren County area, authorities are looking into that for a possible match.

The investigation is ongoing.
