A Torrance couple who died at a Kern County campground were found inside their vehicle along with burned coals, deputies said Thursday.

Autopsies were scheduled for Yoon Suk Han and his wife, Hyun Sook Han, both 64.

Deputies discovered the couple shortly after 1:20 p.m. Sunday after the couple was overdue returning home from a camping trip.

The couple's car was found at the Sandy Flat Campground on Highway 178 near Lake Isabella.

Deputies forced open the car and found the couple inside, unresponsive. Kern County paramedics pronounced the couple dead.

Deputies did not see any signs of trauma or immediate cause of death, but located a propane space heater, a propane cooking stove and burned coals inside the vehicle.
