A body was discovered early Wednesday in a burning vehicle in south Oklahoma City, but foul play is not suspected, police said.
About 5:30 a.m., fire crews responded to the 12200 block of High Meadow Court and found a sport utility vehicle parked in front of a duplex and engulfed in flames. Crews put out the fire and discovered a body in the back seat, police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.
The body had not been identified Wednesday.
Homicide detectives and police responded to the scene, but were called off when foul play was ruled out. The Oklahoma City Fire Department and the state medical examiner’s office have taken over the investigation, Knight said.
The medical examiner will complete an autopsy to determine a cause of death, Knight said.
