ANCHORAGE — Anchorage police have released the names of a man and a woman who were found dead in a running car parked inside a closed garage.

Police identified the two as 47-year-old Van Dan Sosongkhan and 33-year-old Jewell Gafford. Both were Anchorage residents.

Police were notified late Wednesday morning by a caller who said he had gone to the man’s home to check on him and found the bodies of his friend and the woman inside the running car in the detached garage.

The structure is unheated.

Lt. Dave Parker says foul play or suicide are not suspected. He says the cause of death is believed to be accidental carbon monoxide poisoning.
