GREELEY, Colo. (AP) – Authorities have identified the two bodies discovered inside a burned-out vehicle in northern Colorado.

The Greeley Tribune reports ( ) the Weld County Sheriff’s Office identified the two men on Monday as Zachary Allen Moore of Prague, Oklahoma, and Joshua Trae Foster of Muskogee, Oklahoma. They were found earlier this month inside a burned 2007 Dodge Ram in the Pawnee National Grassland.

The fire was reported Oct. 17 near Nunn about 2 miles west of a designated shooting area in the grassland. After the fire was extinguished, authorities found the bodies.

Colorado State Patrol initially thought the fire was the result of a crash. But the sheriff’s office said suspicious circumstances were discovered during the investigation, which remains ongoing.
