Body found in burning vehicle

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WBLT) - What appeared to be just a burning car was hiding much more this afternoon. Jackson Police spokesman Joseph Daughtry says firefighters quickly put out the burning car at Highway-49 and Cynthia Road.

But then they found a body inside the trunk.

The driver was nowhere to be found, and it's too early to determine how the person in the trunk died.

Police hope an autopsy will help as they investigate.
