Couple who died in car fire didn't attempt to exit
McFarland's police chief says the couple found dead in a burned out car early New Year's Day never attempted to get out of the vehicle.
Chief Craig Sherven says that indicates the couple may have been asleep or unconscious as fire burned the car. The deaths of 24-year-old Brandon Slattery and 21-year-old Amy Damon, both of Edgerton, have been ruled accidental.
Sherven says there's no indication of foul play. The chief tells the State Journal both Slattery and Damon appeared to have been sitting in the front seats.
Funeral services for the two were held Monday.
