WILLOW, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say a body has been found inside a burned car in southwestern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Greer County sheriff’s deputy found the car on fire Sunday on a county road north of the town of Willow and that a trooper found a body after the fire was extinguished.

The OHP says there were no signs of a crash and that the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the state Fire Marshal have been asked to assist in the investigation.

The body was sent to the state medical examiner to determine both the identity and the cause of death.
