According to CBS affiliate WKMG, Orange County sheriff's deputies identified the bodies as 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart, who were best friends, according to their other friends.

Deputies told WKMG that Nicholas is the son of Bernie Presha, an investigator for the state attorney's office and longtime former Orange County sheriff's deputy. Both boys attended Winter Park High School in the Orlando area.

The bodies were reportedly found early Sunday morning just off Cady Way Trail near Full Sail University.

In a 911 call released by the Orange County Sheriff's Office, a caller says "I can't tell if there is two mannequins or two people burning."

Deputies said a charred area near a storage unit at the nearby Sun Bay Apartments complex is somehow related to the deaths, reports WKMG.

The causes of death have not been released.
