The Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed Thursday that the second body found in a car in Burbank is the brother of a victim in the car who was reported missing earlier this week.

Twenty-three-year-old Lucas Amiama was identified by the Los Angeles Coroner.

The Coroner identified Jan Carlos Amiama, 21, of Bakersfield. 

Lucas Amiama, Jan Carlos (JC) Amiama, and Carlos Lopez were reported missing from Bakersfield on April 15, according to Bakersfield Police.

Two days later, police in Burbank found a car with three bodies in it. Burbank Police were looking into the possibility that the three bodies were of the three missing men.

The Coroner said the identities of the other body is still pending.
