Body found in burned vehicle in Oklahoma City identified

The Associated Press - May 24, 2017 12:02 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Police say the body of a man found inside a burned vehicle in northwest Oklahoma City more than four months ago has been identified.
Oklahoma City Police Officer Travis Vernier said Tuesday that the body found on Jan. 21 is that of 21-year-old Brandon Chase Alexander of Edmond.
Police said previously that the body was found after flames from the burning vehicle were extinguished and that the body had “pre-existing trauma” that indicated the man was killed before the vehicle was set on fire.
Police arrested a 17-year-old Oklahoma City teenager shortly after the body was found and the teen has since been charged with first-degree murder in the case.
