Relatives and friends of three Maine residents found dead inside a burning car last week say the victims had attended a small gathering and left in a white Pontiac with Rhode Island plates before their deaths, a newspaper reported. The burning car was discovered early Aug. 13 in a parking lot. Someone was seen walking away from the car in video surveillance images recorded at a nearby business, but it is unclear if that person was the driver. Authorities identified the victims as Daniel Thomas Borders, 26, of Hermon; Nicolle Ashley Lugdon, 24, of Eddington; and Lucas Alan Tuscano, 28, of Bradford. Their deaths have been ruled homicides, though the exact cause has not been made public. The Bangor Daily News reported that, according to friends and relatives, the three were at a house gathering before getting into the car, which was driven by someone else.
