BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) -- The Los Angeles County coroner has now confirmed all three bodies found last week in an SUV in Burbank were those of missing Bakersfield men.

Carlos Lopez, 32, like the other two men, died of a of gunshot to his head.

Two brothers, 21-year-old Jan Amiama and 23-year-old Lucas Amiama, were previously identified by the coroner.

The three men were reported missing April 15. They were found dead two days later inside the vehicle parked in an industrial area of Burbank.

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