Two found dead in Pembroke area on Thursday

Kentucky State Police and the Christian County Sheriff’s Department are working together to investigate the deaths of two people found Thursday in the Pembroke area.

Kentucky State Police say the investigation began when firefighters were called to a car fire in a field around the 3000 block of Rosetown Road, just outside Pembroke. Human remains were found in the car.

Witnesses said they heard a noise coming from the area around 2:00 a.m. Thursday. A landowner discovered the car around 8:30 a.m.

The car was registered to a home in Pembroke. Officers obtained a search warrant for 443 South Main Street and found a man dead inside with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the chest.

The names of the two victims have not been released.

Autopsies on both victims are set for Friday in Louisville.
