Autopsies have been performed on two Cayman Islands residents found dead on 22 July in southern California.

The Inyo County Sheriff’s office did not yet have an update to share with the public, however, regarding the deaths of Yvonne Blanco, 69, and husband Keith Henderman, 74. Public information officer Carma Roper advised that processing autopsy results can take longer than many people expect.

Blanco and Henderman were found dead near Charleston View, California, outside of a parked Toyota RAV4 that had been rented in Las Vegas, the Inyo County Sheriff’s office reported on 25 July.

The coroner indicated at the time that their bodies appeared to have been in the location for 24 hours before their discovery.

Their autopsies were expected to be performed outside of Inyo County, located on the southern border between California and Nevada.
