The Region

Two parade-goers were found dead in a tightly sealed van parked in a lot next to the Tournament of Roses parade route, apparently victims of asphyxiation from the fumes of a charcoal cooker they used to keep warm, Pasadena police said. The bodies of Teresa Marie Bruening, 21, of Long Beach, and a 37-year-old Paramount man were found by employees of a carpet store on Colorado Boulevard at Wilson Avenue who became curious about a van parked in their lot all day, Sgt. Bertram Whittaker said. The man's name was not released pending notification of relatives.
