ALLENTOWN - A man, woman and child were discovered dead in a car parked in a garage, but no trauma or injuries were found on two of the badly decomposed bodies, the coroner said yesterday.

Relatives identified the deceased as Cecilia Caban, 24, who had been missing since July 26; her boyfriend, Luis Martinez; and their son, Luis Martinez Jr., 2 .

Lehigh County Coroner Scott Grim performed autopsies yesterday on the woman and child. No cause of death was determined, and Grim said he is awaiting toxicology test results. The man's autopsy was scheduled for today. Police would not immediately confirm the identities, which were provided by the missing woman's father, Carlos Caban, and his wife, Tammy.

Assistant Police Chief Ronald Manescu said someone called police Tuesday about an odor coming from a garage in downtown Allentown. He said officers went to the area about 5:30 p.m. and found the bodies. - AP
