Suspicious Soldotna deaths under investigation

Alaska law enforcement officials are investigating two suspicious deaths in Soldotna. According to an Alaska State Trooper dispatch posted Monday, two burned bodies were found in a burned-out Ford Bronco that was located off a trail near a Soldotna residence.

On Nov. 20, two people were reported missing at the trooper post in Soldotna. The two were known to drive a Ford Bronco and had not been seen since Nov. 14.

The remains were found Sunday night, as Troopers were following up on the missing persons case at the residence where the two were last seen.

Troopers believe the remains are of the missing people. Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters said the bodies are being examined by the state medical examiner for positive identification and cause of death.

The Alaska Bureau of Investigations has joined the investigation.
