Investigators say two brothers who were found dead along with another man inside an SUV in Burbank were shot to death. Coroner's officials said Saturday that 21-year-old Jan Amiama and 23-year-old Lucas Amiana died from gunshot wounds to their heads.

The brothers from Bakersfield and a third man were found dead April 17 inside the vehicle parked in an industrial area of Burbank.

The name of the other man has not been released.

Bakersfield police say the Amiamas and a man named Carlos Lopez were reported missing April 15.

Because the area where the SUV was parked is secluded and close to the freeway, officials said the bodies may have been moved to Burbank.

Homicide detectives are investigating.
